Zip lining, upside down

As promised yesterday, here are two photos of people going down the zip lines upside down.  Like most of the other lengths of zip lines at hacienda Guachipelin, this final length of the zip lines crosses the slot canyon yet again.  

The second photo shows that it is not possible to control the direction of your body as you are hanging upside down on the zip lines.  She had the added thrill of traveling through the air, fast, upside down, and backwards, while looking down at the rushing river in the bottom of the slot canyon.  

You can see three of the attendants and the woman's two friends on the destination platform on the other end of the zip line.  
 
As I mentioned yesterday, my younger son, Stuart, did this zip line upside down, but I did not.  Was it foremost on my mind wondering what I would do with my camera that was dangling around my neck if my nearly 60 year old bones were hanging upside down?  Sure, that was it.

The first photo looks like a yoga pose

No thank you!

These girls look fit and full of sass. What fun to have gone through the course with them. I imagine there's a bit of bonding that goes on when you are testing yourself that way.

It's terrific seeing other brave folks enjoying themselves. And we can imagine the thrill and craziness through your camera's lense. Thanks. (No scrapes or bumps along the way??)

Well sure, how boring just to go right side up on a zip line over a chasm. No thrill in that, right?

I wouldn't do this either!

I think I'll skip this too:-)

That looks a bit scary. I'd rather do it right side up.
