A Patriotic Day of Soaring!

DSC_0756Though it’s hard for us to believe that the summer is moving so quickly, we happily welcomed Independence Day a few days ago with our largest group of the season, topping out at 92 guests! Our brave Soaring guests, ranging from the small and spritely to the seasoned veteran, enjoyed a lovely day of patriotic adventure on our Durango zipline course. Our Fourth of July was even more delightful because we enjoyed a lovely day of overcast skies and mountain sprinkles. This family-friendly zip line runs despite the rain (lightning permitting), allowing our guests to experience the beautiful forested valley under a pleasantly cloudy sky. We were thrilled to have our flags waving and our guests flying on America’s birthday in one of the best preserved areas of the American West. With the historic mining town of Silverton just to the north and lively Durango to the south, Soaring is the perfect place for a family vacation.

As the summer continues, we look forward to new memories and exciting adventures. In addition to Soaring, many of our guests choose to take advantage of the countless other outdoor activities while in Durango. A beautiful mountain town nestled at the foot of the San Juan Mountains, Durango is the perfect family destination in Colorado. Home to breathtaking mountain hikes of all difficulties, exciting rafting on the unforgettable Animas River, and exquisite local dining, Durango is the ultimate summer vacation. And, with delightful towns such as Ouray and Telluride just hours away, you will never be without a chance to window shop. As you plan the rest of your summer, consider joining us in the cool mountain air for what promises to be a relaxing and invigorating vacation!
