It seems like every time I turn around, I see an advertisement for yet another movie based on a comic book character. Why is this? From Spiderman to the Fantastic Four , it seems our culture is obsessed with super-human abilities, and why wouldn’t we be?
I doubt there’s a single man or woman in this world who hasn’t imagined what it would be like to fly without the aid of an airplane or crush a tall building with our hands.
I can’t help you with the crushing of tall buildings, but I can guide you to a place where you can fly just like Superman. Soaring Canopy Tours in Durango, Colorado is one of the best outdoor vacations you will ever embark upon.
The model is pretty ingenious, really: the entire adventure consists of five hours of riding various zip lines through a gorgeous, woodsy piece of property. You’ll take the Durango & Silverton Railroad to the property itself and during your zip line adventure you’ll get to stop for drinks and snacks, and the entire experience culminates in a gourmet feast for all guests.
This type of outdoorsy vacation is fun for the entire family, and although it might not be right for someone who is deathly afraid of heights, it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. If you can’t imagine yourself swinging from tree to tree like Tarzan, you can accompany your group on foot for a discounted price.
Tennis shoes or hiking boots are recommended for the Soaring Canopy course, so make sure you raid the stock at Zappos before you head out. You might want to try something with a high ankle, such as the Scarpa Barun GTXs Scarpa Barun GTXs , which are equipped with bi-directional ankle flex.
The Soaring Canopy zip line adventure includes 22 lines and 28 platforms, making it the “largest, longest and safest” zip line course in the entire world. It operates seven days a week, rain or shine, and costs $339 per person for the entire adventure. You can visit their web site to make a reservation, or you can call 970.769.2357.
Who knows? This might be the unique outdoor vacation you’ve been looking for!
