6. TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE Wake up in time to get up in the saddle this morning for a trail ride that encourages the cowboy in you. The Colorado River, sandstone buttes and flat-topped mesas provide a beautiful backdrop for this outdoor adventure. A change of pace and setting follows during our visit to the funky honky-tonk town of Moab, frequented by an eclectic mix of outdoor enthusiasts and artists. Take part in a favorite town tradition when we have lunch at Moab Diner, where the locals go! A short drive away, Canyonlands National Park entices with rugged scenery of bizarre pinnacles, sheer-sided alleys and otherworldly topography. Colors take on unearthly hues of pink and orange that glow and change depending on the light of the day, adding new dimensions to today’s discoveries. If

7. GLOWING ARCHES Hundreds of unusual red sandstone sculptures dominate the landscape in nearby Arches National Park. Carved by wind and rain and chiseled with Mother Nature’s whimsical touch, these wondrous formations create a geologic playground for the Culturious. Take a three-mile hike up sloping, slick rock to Delicate Arch, balancing precariously on the edge of a canyon. Cool off back at the ranch, take a dip in the pool, or put your feet up in the spa, aaahhh... Dinner tonight is a festive affair, western style, a most fitting Culturious finale before we hit the trail for home in the morning. Meals BD
