100-Feet Tall...

Open_windows Those of you who know me, know that I am afraid of heights.  Those of you who know me, also know that over the past year or more I have resolved to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone by trying new things.  With this new outlook comes the need to face this fear of heights.  I am going on a cruise in January with four of my girlfriends and have decided that this trip will be the first step in doing just that!  Now, I could simply climb the rock wall or maybe parasail, but no, I plan to take on the "Lost World Canopy Tour and Rappeling." 

•Enter a cavernous tunnel which leads to a primeval rainforest encircled by crevassed rock walls more than 100-feet tall, for your tour of the Lost World Cave. There are five traverses, ranging from 105-500 feet apart taking you across the fallen ceiling of this enormous cave. Your guides will outfit and provide you with a detailed safety briefing. Soar from platform to platform above the floor of the densely populated forest. Your last traverse takes you to a rock shelf protruding from the side of the large tunnel-like entrance to the cave, ending with a rappel to the floor.

I can only hope that I will not chicken out!  Putting this out here for all to read will help keep me accountable to my goal.  I will keep you posted!

Which brings to mind this thought:

"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible." ~St. Francis of Assisi
