This was the mountain view we gazed upon as we stood below a Next to Heaven zipline!

And now, Rebecca’s turn.

Although Christian’s face appears surly, I think he enjoyed his zipline experience just as much as Rebecca:)

Next to Heaven Mountain Adventures soaring above Wears Valley, TN

Special note:  The vacation activity our kids most hoped for was riding ziplines. They had never ziplined previously. Even advertised ziplines were soooo expensive that I didn’t think we could afford it, especially since I discovered the week before our trip the necessity of a $700 out-of-pocket dental crown. Ugh. Anyway, I stumbled upon the Next to Heaven website where Jeremiah 29:11 was quoted!!! A photo of their road sign includes the phrase “To God Be All Glory!” Indeed! I phoned the business and asked about the possibility of 1 zipline per kid rather than their 3-zipline package. The owner agreed! I paid cash for what we could afford, and our kids were entirely grateful for the single zipline. What a blessing!!!
