Hurtling down the slide into Guadalupe river

Last weekend I had gone caving with a group of avid cavers from DFW Grotto. After a day under the earth's surface exploring underground passages and marvelling at the amazing stalactite and stalagmite formations we decided to head back towards Dallas. And enroute Bill Steele suggested that it would be a great idea to stop at Mo Ranch and enjoy a swim in the Guadalupe river. When I heard the name I didn't give much thought to it.

But when I reached there, I was pretty impressed by the facilities and features of the ranch. The management describes itself as a camp and conference affiliated with the with the Synod of the Sun of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The ranch was founded in 1949 and its full name is Presbyterian Mo-Ranch Assembly. Sprawling across 500 acres of lush green countryside complete with rolling hills with the river Guadalupe slicing across it, Mo Ranch presents a idyllic picturesque setting for a great family holiday.

The reason we went there was to enjoy a dip in the waters and to enjoy rolling down the 50 ft tall water slide into the cool waters of the Guadalupe. Here is the video of each one of us plummetting down the slide and splashing into the waters.

Hey Jithendra, you know what hurtling down the slide for the first time was quite scary... but LOTS OF FUN.. I wish we could create such spots in India...
