Hiking through the woods has taken a whole new role in Russia with the 170 foot trampoline path. Visitors to the forest can quickly and artfully bounce their way by, experiencing the forest in a new light. See something in the canopy that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to view. It is almost as if for a moment we are transformed into one of the birds flying above, soaring to new heights to get a glimpse from a vantage point one wouldn’t normally have. What an interesting way to experience nature in a modern world. However, I do wonder how one would use such a device. In today’s fast paced society, would we just quickly bounce to get from A to B at a much faster rate and not even bother to pay attention to the serenity of the woods around us? I would assume so. There are however those of us that would use it to experience nature in a new and unique way, myself included.
