After I was done blogging yesterday, it was time for breakfast! IMG_5825

That’s the beauty of staying in a Bed & Breakfast! It includes breakfast!

Everything was freshly made here and it was delicious!

Once we were sufficiently fueled for the day, we headed out on our ziplining excursion!! It was my gift to Irving for Valentine’s Day this year! (Via LivingSocial of course!) We chose Action Zipline, which is right at the base of the ski mountains. They first take you in a large van, and then you switch to army-style off road vehicles. They don’t allow cameras on the tour at all for safety reasons, and I was really bummed I couldn’t get pictures of this part. But we weren’t there for the truck, we were there to ZIPLINE!!!

After a brief safety demonstration, we were already on the platform ready for our first jump! One by one, we zipped across. I had a hard time knowing how to brake, and came slamming into the landing blocks the first few times. But then I got the hang of it.

They were snapping pictures of everyone (but at $5 a pop, we only walked away with two of them). We almost didn’t get any, but these were too good! Plus, a blog needs pictures right?

Whoo hooo! Here comes Irving!!!


Look, ma! No Hands!!

The whole trip took about three hours from start to finish, and it was a blast! It’s an adrenaline rush for sure! We’d do it again in a heartbeat!

After our tour, we grabbed lunch and….dessert! I was dying for some REAL ice cream. I love frozen yogurt, but sometimes, only real ice cream will fit the bill. This was Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Dough! YUM!

Irving got a frozen chocolate covered twinkie….yea. he did. Oh, and he wanted me to mention that it was also rolled in Oreos too.

We wanted to get a few more miles in for the day, so we walked to the other side of town to the Bear Mountain Brewery. Irving tried the flight (4oz. each of their signature brews).

I tried a sip of each, but enjoyed my Arnold Palmer!

We sat for about an hour and chatted and enjoyed the scenery. We were across the street from the Alpine Slides. I’d love to try those one day!

Then Irving declared that the “beers were half way done”. Which meant it was time for nachos.

We split them, but they were mediocre at best. I think we make better nachos at home…


Once full, we walked back to our room (we walked 11,000 steps yesterday, (which is a little over 5 miles.)

We watched Strictly Ballroom, and were in bed by 8:30. YES!!!! Feels good to get some solid sleep in. There is nothing like waking up at 6:30am refreshed and energized. And I get to sit on the porch again and breath in that fresh mountain air.

Today, we have a 7 mile nature walk planned, and then we’re heading back to LA. See ya later!

PS. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday, mom! NTOTHAK!

    Isn’t ziplining the best?! What great photos! I think that was $10 well spent. 😉 Sounds like a great little getaway weekend.

  2. Arnold Palmers are my fave and I really want to go zip lining!
