Only 38 DAYS until departure on March 21, 2019 (at 6 am!) for the 2nd Annual Utah Travel Program. This year will have some new adventures such as slot canyon swimming (wet suits provided) – would you rappel down to the water or just ‘drop’ !??? The itinerary holds some familiar locals in the Leprechaun Canyons and adds new places like the Slidenide and Tracheotomy Canyons and a day of exploring primitive fires and pottery.
