Dale Shaw spoke for many with her great letter to the editor on Sunday, Jan. 20. Ironically, I was in Tallahassee that Sunday at a little gem called the Tallahassee Museum of Natural History or Junior Museum. This includes a very small but pristine zoo with native cats, reptiles, a black bear and birds. While perusing the animals, people were zooming overhead on zip lines. What extraordinary fun. There are three zip lines: one for children; an intermediate that takes an hour; and an advanced that takes two hours. Next time I visit, I will wear proper shoes and try not to make a fool of myself on the intermediate.
The zip lines are half obstacle courses. Thus one must walk logs, crawl through barrels, and walk rope swings, etc. -- all aloft. The thrill of actually soaring along the zip lines is a perk.
The museum also includes an authentic farmstead a la Landmark Park, with a beautiful garden tended by Tallahassee Master Gardeners.
What a great and doable park for Dothan.
