  • Rising Action
  • During our summer vacation to Callaway Gardens, my family and I drove over the Georgia/Alabama state line to go white water rafting and zip-lining over the Chattahoochee River. We woke up early, got dressed, and started the short drive to the rendezvous point to get our equipment.
  • Climax
  • After we had a snack in the car, we started down the sidewalk and into the shop to sign in and get our equipment. My mom and I were pretty nervous as we gathered around the guides for instructions, but my brother helped calm me down. My mom on the other hand stayed nervous the whole bus ride to the dock.
  • Falling Action
  • Once we got down to the dock and got assigned to our tour guides, we went stand near our rafts and made sure our equipment was on right. I started to get nervous again, thinking about how the raft might flip and we might float away. All the warning and instructions made me think of the worst that could happen. My mom was probably doing the same, only times four, because she is always looking out for the rest of us. We got into the raft and learned how to paddle and what the calls meant. My brother and dad kept cracking jokes and striking up conversations to help calm and detract my mom and me.
  • Falling Action (continued)
  • Once we started to actually go rafting down the river my worries melted away. Our guide was very funny and great at pointing out interesting things along the sides of the river. Combine him with my brother and dad, and I probably laughed the whole raft ride. At one point went we went over one of the bigger rapids, I got nervous about flipping the raft, but we all came out in the boat. My brother then proceeded to make fun of my mom and my faces and the way we squealed through the rapid. Then we got out and into a lazy river where we floated down stream until the water was deep enough for the rafts again. The rest of the rapids were not as big, and before I knew it the trip was over. After our guide helped us out of the raft, we took a longer than I would like walk back to the shop, and dropped our equipment back off at the shop.
  • After we ate some lunch we went back to the shop and got harnesses to go zip-lining over the Chattahoochee River, which is where we went rafting. We then walked across the street to the zip-lining tower, went up a whole lot of steep stairs, and waited for the line to be clear. I had been zip-lining before and loved it, so I wasn't too scared about this one. My mom, on the other hand, was super nervous about this too. She always said "If I was meant to be up high, God would have made me tall!" That didn't stop us from making fun of the fact that, even with heels and while standing on a step, she couldn't reach her harness high enough to hook onto the zip-line. After a while though, and after many jokes, the worker was able to get a bit calmer mom up onto the line. Her and dad went first, and she screamed all the way across.
  • The zip-line was 1,200 feet long and 60 feet high; you could go up to 40 miles per hour! It was beautiful to see the river from a different angle. Once we got to the end we went on two smaller zip-lines, then took a boat back to the other side and went back across the street to the shop. They take pictures of you before and while you go across the zip-line, and we had quite a laugh when we saw mom's face.
