Located on the side of gorgeous Haleakala, we got suited up, hooked on to a zipline and then jumped off of a perfectly good spot that was safely on ground. We went on a five-line course and each one was better than the last, with our final run being the highest, 6,000 feet above land, … [Read more...]
