This Canopy Walk In Texas Will Make Your Stomach Drop
Have you ever dreamed of being high up in the treetops among the rare animals and plants that live there, hidden from the view of those looking up from the forest floor so far down below? Texas has just the place to give you the unique opportunity to see what lurks within the virtually untouched leaves – and maybe get over your fear of heights in the process.
Cypress Valley Canopy Tours in Spicewood (near Austin) is a zip lining and treetop bridge experience like no other. Don’t worry, the zips are very short and designed for beginners, so you have nothing to worry about. What I want to focus on are the sky bridges – they’re over 40 feet tall and they shake and rattle with every step you take (with your harness firmly attached to you and tour guides never leaving your sight, if that eases your anxiety at all). They look a lot scarier than they are, I promise. And once you get past the initial fear and really start to look around and take in all the beautiful scenery from a whole new perspective, it’ll be one of the most unforgettable things you’ve ever done.
