    Jeff Carson, recreation specialist at USAG Grafenwoehr's Outdoor Recreation, describes the proper way to traverse the High Ropes Course.

GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- As part of a team-building and resiliency event, July 2, more than 20 Bavaria Military Community directors and supervisors tackled Outdoor Recreation's High Ropes Course, here.

ODR's Brian Jansma and Jeff Carson provided a safety and equipment briefing before participants took to the trees.

Most of the participants began with a fresh pace and vigor, which was continually tested as, with each obstacle, the level of difficulty and height above the ground increased.

Following the high-altitude, team-building event, directors and supervisors communed over burgers and brats near the cabins on Heid Lake.
