The surgeons at Icon LASIK have sharpened the vision of more than 90,000 patients since 1999, including professional athletes John Elway, Tom Danielson, and Bode Miller. Using three types of LASIK lasers, the doctors are equipped to address a range of acuity impairments, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Before procedures, Orbscan mapping and measurement technology takes careful stock of the structure and power of each eye without revealing television watching habits.
The licensed trailblazers at Adrift Adventures have safely guided adventurers on boat, horseback, and jeep tours of Canyonlands National Park and the surrounding areas for 33 years. The half-day river excursion draws paddlers down the Colorado River through an august landscape along rapids suitable for rookies and swashbucklers alike. Two daily departure times afford rafters different takes on the area's natural beauty. Birds and fish rub sleep from their eyes and amid river and canyon panoramas as morning excursionists cast off at 8:30 a.m., returning about four hours later. The afternoon ride provides rays for sun-fueled eye feasting and lunch for carb-fueled mouth feasting, embarking at 11:15 a.m. and returning about five hours later to a planet of sentient apes.
Your excursion begins at the Moab Adventure Center, from whence the fearless adventure-teers will transport you to a calm stretch of the Colorado River. You'll get all the necessary rafting gear before you hit the rapids on the rafting adventure of a lifetime. Over the two-day journey, you'll drift over 100 miles of the river, tucked 2,000 feet within breathtaking sandstone formations, canyon mazes, and natural rock arches carved from lingering long-melted glaciers. You'll come across ancient Native American ghost-towns and camp overnight on the banks of the Colorado, where guides will prepare a freshly cooked dinner complete with delectable dessert before you retire for the night (roomy tents and cozy, elevated cots are included). At the end of the second day, a Cessna 5–7-seater aircraft will take you on a scenic hour-long flight over Canyonlands National Park and back to the adventure center in Moab.
The professional guides at Red River Adventures expose adventurous individuals to the rugged and untamed splendor of Utah's rocks, rivers, and canyons with trips designed for all skill levels. The Fisher Towers whitewater-rafting trips pair smaller, intimate groups of four to six paddlers (40 lbs. or heavier) with a licensed Utah river guide for a 21-mile adventure along Onion Creek, Professor Creek, Cloudburst, and Ida Gulch. Before provoking the Class II wrath of Poseidon (Class III with the spring runoff, though it drops in late summer), the guides will review safety procedures and outfit swashbucklers with U.S. Coast Guard–approved life jackets. From the safety of the river-faring craft, paddlers absorb a soaring view of the Fisher Towers, as well as canyon walls that line the waterway and enable time-bending communication with ancient yodelers. After a fierce day of paddling the surf, adventurers will stretch sea arms on white sands while enjoying a communal dinner and settling into a starlit slumber within provided sleeping bags. Before cruising the tides back to home turf, refuel arm engines with a riverside breakfast.
