Up, Up and Above!

Yesterday I went to the Above the Falls Challenge Course with work and boy was it a fun time! I would say team building and communication challenges are in my top 10 of things to do. The Challenge Course has something for everyone all the way from basic to advanced skills. Rob Bundy and Craig Harrison were our guides for the day and they did an awesome job! I would recommend this attraction to anyone, I hope you can all make it out sometime soon!

When we first arrived Rob had the whole group of us do a couple of “get to know each other” games and then we headed out on the course. We were split in to two groups, I was in a group where we had to “build a bridge” consisting of 3 pieces of wood and 5 posts to put the wood in. Long story short we had to do a bit of balancing and physical work, but spent most of the time trying how to figure out how to get all of us across.

Next we headed to the climbing tower where we suited up in harnesses and helmets. This is where we all got to look pretty nerdy! Everyone got a chance to climb or sit and watch. I will say… I could not make it to the top, this proves to me that I need to work harder and get stronger. I also came home with a giant bruise on my arm, in which Rob and Craig called a “medal.” We had such an awesome day and I can’t wait to go back and make it to the top. We had some really fast climbers in the group and it was really great to see! Oh and of course, I can’t forget the food… We had the lunch catered in from the Benmiller Inn, they made us a paperless lunch which consisted of an assortment of pitas, veggies and dip, fruit and homemade dessert buns, yummy!!!
