Ziplining through Jurassic Park

One of my all-time favorite experiences has been ziplining through Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii, which is where Jurassic Park was filmed. It’s one thing to experience Hawaii’s scenery from the ground, and it’s another thing to fly right through it. There were waterfalls below me, the mountains were looming above me; I definitely pretended I was a pterodactyl once or twice. One of the most exciting parts was getting to go on one of the lines upside down. Flipping upside down was the easy part, but getting myself back on the ground afterward was tricky. And most embarrassingly, the scariest part was trying not to drop my phone as I took the below selfie mid-air, 200 feet above ground. This is the kind of thing those life proof phone cases are for, right?
