Note from Robin : Obviously it's going to be a lot warmer in summer, so bundle up if you're going to fly in winter (even Superman wears his thermal underwear). I'd advise to focus on the flight itself and don't worry too much about taking pictures - as with all ziplines, it will be over before you know it!
PRESENTED BY FORD OF CANADA
It’s a rare occasion when the name of a car aligns so perfectly with what I’ve used it for. Whether rocketing along the notorious Trans-Labrador Highway, or cruising among the mountainous candy of the Icefield Parkway, the Ford Escape has indeed lived up to its name. It has stood up to some pretty epic challenges, and that includes taking a 6-month baby on a 30-day cross-country book tour. Compact yet spacious, powerful yet fuel efficient, and loaded with features you’ll soon wonder how you did without, the Ford Escape more than lives up to its moniker. – Robin Esrock
