American Summer in the trees..................

The majestic trees in Northern California reach for the blue Summer sky................

................and provide a lot of fun for those in search of flying high!

Before I end glimpses into Summer at Lake Almanor, I wanted to share the latest additions at Paula's house.  If you're young, or older but brave, there's a great bungee jump.  Here you see Cullen helping Jasmin get into the harness...................

.............and before long she was bouncing up into the blue.

As if that wasn't enough fun for one afternoon, she then tried out the new zipline...............

............................needless to say I was in the old but not brave enough class so did not try this.  I felt I should keep my precious limbs in one piece ready for traversing slippery decks and rough waters on the upcoming sub-Antarctic trip!  Besides, you may recall I'd put my back out on the way to California and performing Cirque de Soleil tricks in the trees was not near the top of my 'fun to do' list.  Some things are just best left to the young, don't you agree?

Fun, fun and more fun!


  1. I was afraid that I was about to read that you'd done a bungee jump! I tried zip lining a few years ago and it was fun, but there's no way I'll ever jump off anything higher than the second porch step!

  2. They look like they are having a ball. I'm like you I'd rather watch the fun and live vicariously through the young. Take care.

  3. What a beautiful place to have a lot of fun and enjoy nature. I'm with you... protect the limbs, ours not the trees. hehe

  4. Great pictures Mary. There is an amazing zip line near us called Treego. It is very challenging with a lot of climbing up trees and walking across between them then zipping across the water twice! I'm with you. Feet on the ground!! lol Have a great weekend.

  5. I don't know about bungee jumping, but the zipline in Thailand was a thrill I won't soon forget. Crazy, but I didn't think at my age I would be doing it, but I loved it. Maybe next time your back won't be hurting.

  6. That looks like a lot of fun, and Jasmin looks like she is having a blast!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
