Take Zip’s-Eye View of Changing Leaves

As a big guy, I’m not to good at balancing on a high-wire. Yes I’ve tried it. No it didn’t go well.

But a Zip Line is a high-wire of a different sort. Instead of teeter-tottering with your feet, you let a harness, a pulley system and gravity move you olong an inclined wire from point A to point B.

A Zip Line over Super Bowl Village Indy nearly stole the show as thousands waited for hours at a 20-second ZZZZZZZIP past the convention center. The concept lives on in grandeur just a few miles a way in Eagle Creek Park as a sprawling Zip Line course provides a birds-eye view of, well, other birds as well as the amazing fall foliage still popping forth from the west side park.

This post on the Visit Indiana fall-dedicated site goes into more detail about the trail and what else to do in November in Central Indiana.
