girl scouts: adrenaline junkies

 - by Beth

Ally has enjoyed a number of events sponsored by her Girl Scout troop this year, especially a trip roller skating and an event that could only be called craftapalooza. But the best by far was a trip snow tubing! We enjoyed a sunny day in the 50s and had a blast zipping down a hill.  The snow was manufactured, but it did the trick!

A mechanical ramp/lift carries you to the top of the hill.

Don't let the mild slope fool you-- the tubes go really, really fast.

At the top of the hill, you're asked if you want to go straight or spin.  Ally convinced them to spin me once and, well, now I know what a centrifuge feels like.
