With a plan in place we headed to Park City for some fun. We went straight to the Olympic Park which is where they have the Bobsled/Luge track, the Nordic Ski Jumps, and Freestyle Jumps. You can watch the athletes train as they go off the freestyle jumps into a pool and on Saturdays they even do a show that would be fun to see. They also have an Alpine type slide and two Zip Lines. We were feeling a little adventurous and decided to do the Quicksilver Alpine Slide and the Bobsled. The Zip Lines were more than we thought we could handle all in one day. If you look at the picture of Me in front of the Ski Jumps the Zip Lines go down the sides of the jumps. The smaller line is on the right side and goes about half way up. The BIG zip line is on the left and goes all the way to the top of the K120 jump and is said to be the steepest in the world. No thanks.
The Quicksilver starts up there as well and goes off the the left but you can't see it in the picture. We decided to do the Quicksilver first as a warm up for the Bobsled and going up the ski lift to the top and looking down the zip line confirmed our decision not to do the zip line. The Quicksilver was fun. It is only a single track unlike the one over in town that is two but it is made of stainless steel instead of cement and it said to be the only one in America made that way. You can see a picture of April riding the slide and the excitement on her face says it all.
Then we headed up to the top on the Bobsled track. You drive your car up, ride the sled down, and they take you back to the top to get your car. The ride only takes about a minute but the feeling you get last about an hour after. It was so much fun, at about a dollar a second it better be. I told April she wasn't going to be able to get the smile off my face the rest of the day it was so much fun (like she would have tried to remove the smile anyways). About an hour later we crashed from our high and need some chips and salsa and caffeine to help us settle back down.

We then went to Main Street and walked the shops and had dinner to finish the day. It was quite the way to spend our anniversary and is going to be hard to top next year. Maybe we will have to go skydiving, just kidding it will probably be dinner and a movie which is more our pace.
