The Gulf State park is in the works or putting up a new Zip Line Adventure over Lake Shelby here in the Gulf State park between Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. If you’re cruising along the beach road you can’t miss it. Eager tourists can now line up to go zipping across the lake and even get dropped in Lake Shelby to cool off on a hot summer day. This new attraction looks like a good time! However the plans for the zip line to be up and running may be put on hold just a little while. During the construction and the lifting of the platforms, one worker spotted a creature that is very dear to this area. A Beach Mouse! That’s right, hard to believe a little critter such as that can put a big construction job on hold but it can. This is nothing new for these parts. The Beach Mouse is a native here of the dunes and beaches. Since the Gulf State park is considered a nature preserve, they are very concerned with protecting and preserving all life there. Which is a great thing!!
