Our first sunset-full moon zipline of the season proved to be a pretty splendid ‘night out’ in the mountains: aside from the spectacular views, it was also a celebration of true bravery. While it takes courage to even consider hurtling through the darkness attached to a cable, the real heroes were the large contingent of volunteer fire-fighters invited by Ryan (a volunteer fire-fighter himself) to have some fun in the great outdoors.

Talented photographers-fire fighters, David Morris and Andrew Hagen, captured the magic of the colourful LED lights worn by some of the intrepid adventurers as they soared the night-sky, creating a flight path that looked like it belonged to the lesser spotted Christmas unicorn.

And then, a few of our own shots… captured on nothing fancier than an iPhone. Some of these shots will give you an idea of just how dark it really is!
