Before taking lessons in a one-room schoolhouse, a visitor hops aboard a stagecoach, interviews a worker at a uranium mine, examines authentic adobe pottery, and heads inside a saloon. Such is the scene at Museum of the West, one of the three campuses of the Museum of Western Colorado where curators eschew the notion of “look, but don’t touch.” From the interactive labs at the Dinosaur Journey Museum to the live demonstrations of early 20th-century life at the Cross Orchards Historic Site—whose buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places—the staff encourages its guests to get up close and personal with the region’s past.

Nestled in the La Sal Mountain range of southeastern Utah, Raven's Rim Zip Line Adventure treats visitors to unsullied views of the Great Basin before launching them feet-first on zooming ziplines. After rumbling over 2 miles of off-road terrain in a 6-seater Polaris Ranger (this adventure is not recommended for customers with bad backs), guests walk over rugged mountain terrain to reach the start of the multitiered zipline course. Once there, participants safely link up to a series of lines that send them soaring on zips runs more than a thousand feet long over otherworldly ridge and valley landscapes and arid ecosystems.
