On Wednesday of last week, we spent the day at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, a park located at 7100 ft. elevation above Glenwood Springs. Matt's Uncle Ron sent money for us to buy day passes for the park, and it was a load of fun.
You ride a tram up the mountain to reach the park.

One of the first rides we rode was the Soaring Eagle Zip Line. Mom & Essie give it a try.
Chloe was really not sure she wanted to give this ride a try, but she ended up loving it and riding it over and over.

Chloe, again very nervous, but on the first of many runs on this ride, which was a favorite
Dad loved the Alpine Coaster.
Here is a YouTube video someone made with a GoPro of the ride.

This is the Canyon Flyer - a ride that swings you out over Glenwood Canyon - a drop of many hundred feet
Mom & Dad only made it once on this ride, but the kids rode it over and over.

We also rode the Cliffhanger Coaster - the highest-altitude coaster in North America. We didn't get any pictures from this ride, but here is a YouTube video showing the rider's point-of-view.
