Moab Outdoor Adventure HOP (Head Out Program) May 29 – June 3, 2019 If you love outdoor adventure, then this HOP is for you! Moab, Utah is a perfect climate for outdoor events and Escapees has an exciting, action-packed outdoor adventure awaiting your arrival. Several days will be filled with 4x4 runs, while exploring the beautiful Moab area with your HOP hosts. An all-day rafting trip will bring you fun and adventure, as you experience breathtaking views of the canyon scenery. The 14-mile trip will stop midway for lunch along the riverbank, as a welcomed and enjoyable break. You will also have time to go for a swim on this trip. After rafting, take time to wander through downtown Moab to see the great selection of shops, restaurants, galleries and friendly hospitality. During the HOP, you will have access to a Dinosaur Tracks Museum, with interactive technology, as well as exhibits dedicated to the formation of tracks and the stories they tell us! See a theater movie depicting evolutionary theories, which will take you back to the time of dinosaurs. At the Prehistoric Aquarium, explore the ancient sea creatures on 3D virtual screens, as if you were there in person. Be prepared as you come face to face with an ancient giant shark. This realistic 5D experience is sure to be one of your favorites! On the last day of the HOP, you will experience a leisurely cruise up the river, in a wide-open boat and learn about the formations of the majestic red rock cliffs that surround you, while sipping a glass of complimentary wine, beer, or soft drink. Countless photo opportunities will be available all along the route. At a shady spot near a natural acoustic cliff wall, the captain will turn off the boat engine so you can enjoy live Western music.

In the summer it's a hub of activity including not only world-class fishing and boating, but also swimming, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting and, of course, camping.Come explore Flaming Gorge with us on this Kitchen Table Trips episode of Grand Adventure! We'll find relaxing boondocking along the eastern shore, along with Forest Service campgrounds and even full-hookup RV parks as well. We'll visit nearby Brown's Park, one of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid's favorite hideouts, to see the John Jarvie Historic Ranch maintained by the BLM, and we'll also kayak through Horseshoe Canyon. We'll gaze down upon Flaming Gorge from Red Canyon, and view the engineering marvel that is the Flaming Gorge Dam. It's one of our favorite places to visit each year.
