Flight of the Gibbon

Yesterday we went up into the jungle outside Chiang Mai for a day with Flight of the Gibbon, one of the original zipline tour companies in Asia.  Among the day's activities were the world's longest single zipline at over 800M, and some up close time with wild gibbons who live on the course.

  5. Good to see that the clan rose to the challenge! God I love gibbons. I used to visit the gibbon at Lincoln Park Zoo pretty frequently when I lived in Chicago. He always reminded me a little of Scotty, especially when it was flinging poo. Zip on, Ward Barbers!
