Benjamin Allen believes outdoor pursuits can positively influence those in need. This belief has led him all over the continent, building a ropes course for an orphanage in Mexico and setting up two courses for troubled youth at Provo Canyon School, a bit closer to home. Wanting to share his knowledge of nature with the public, he set up a course, CLAS Ropes Course, near Utah Lake nearly 20 years ago. Benjamin and his crew have since erected more than 50 ropes courses around the country, continuing to inspect ropes and train others how to run them.
CLAS Ropes Course continues to grow each year, creating obstacles such as a giant swing that releases passengers 40 feet in the air, a 400-foot zipline that whizzes through forest canopy, and a "leap of faith," where adventure seekers jump from a treetop platform to a trapeze. A log balance beam hung 30 feet above the ground and a 24-foot-tall rock-climbing tower test agility and endurance, and a fleet of 20 canoes lets paddlers navigate a mile and a half of river. Many of these structures play host to team-building activities focused on developing a group's creativity and tolerance for hearing one another sing. Staff members tailor their instruction to families, dating groups, or athletic teams. They often apply their approach to athletes, such as a professional golfer who traveled all the way from Texas hoping to conquer her fear of not qualifying for tournaments. She defeated the log balance beam, departed victorious, and qualified during her next tryout two weeks later.
Though it began as a snowmobiling tour group in the early 1980s, the family owners of High Country Rafting quickly expanded their territory to the water, the trails, and the forest canopy. Conducting most of their trips on a 6-mile stretch of the lower Provo River and a 12-mile canyon-clad expanse of the Weber River, High Country's guides encourage locals and visitors alike to explore the area's rugged terrain and take in the natural treasures made possible by its ecosystem. The company frequently puts this love of the environment into practice, urging catch-and-release during fishing excursions and often lending their gear to others for trips down the river to collect drifting garbage.
The group's more than 20 guides lead rafting trips down the Provo River's class I and II rapids or the Weber River's class II and III rapids, pointing out local flora and fauna as well as unique rock formations along the way. Combination trips set out on a mountain train ride before rafting commences or add ziplining to a day of rafting, sending guests out of water and sweeping through overhead tree canopies over the Provo River. Prospective guides with High Country Rafting commit to internalizing the local rivers and terrain on their own before they're trusted with leading groups, ensuring each one knows how to handle excursion variables and what the river gods' favorite appeasing snack is on Tuesdays.
After watching his father work in the glass industry for more than 30 years, Troy Mason followed in his footsteps by opening his own full-service glass shop in 1991. Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.
When they aren't competing for glass and glory, technicians replace windshields with parts and products purchased directly from the manufacturers, and back their work with lifetime warranties. Techna Glass also offers a lifetime rock-chip-repair membership, which entitles owners to unlimited repairs of damage caused by errant stones.

Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations.
Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
In 1916, Winder Dairy still delivered its bottles of milk by horse and wagon?but only because founder John R. Winder found the quadruped "more efficient" than the Model T delivery truck brought in the year before. Today, under the new moniker Winder Farms, fifth- and sixth-generation Winders uphold their family's reputation for speed, delivering cooler boxes packed with more than 300 farm-fresh products to customers' doorsteps each night. All-natural milk?free of artificial growth hormones or antibiotics and housed in classic glass milk jugs?takes 24 to 36 hours to travel from farm to doorstep, and natural and organic skinless and boneless chicken also zips to grills and skillets.
All deliveries are made overnight and guaranteed by 8 a.m. Customers can select their desired goods online, and recurring orders grant the freedom to remove "buy eggs" from the to-do list permanently tattooed on your upper back. Winder Farms also sells wholesale quantities of its milk, juice, and bakery items, as well as complete meals such as ravioli and enchiladas.
