ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Anyone registered for the September 18 trip?

Kenneth Doine Mar 10, 2014 at 10:03 AM

This will be my first RS trip, going June 2nd to 10th
Roberta Hung Mar 31, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Excellent choice for 1st RS trip. Staff and fellow travelers were great. There were long stretches on the bus, but the driver was the best. Food was ok, the usual buffet fare. I opted for the more challenging route at Bryce and was glad. Temperature was dry 90s so keep hydrated and dress cool. Wear sneakers rather than sandals as some hiking trails are on sand or stone. You will enjoy this trip.

I know this is early, but anyone going on the Sept 1, 2014 trip? This will be our second RS trip and we just can't wait to meet new RS friends...Jim and Jean Lessard, Brockton, MA

Is anybody going September 23rd, 2013? Where are you from?

Harvey and Marjorie Huiner Aug 31, 2013 at 10:53 AM

I wonder how large a group will be on the September 9 tour.
Deanna & John Mooney Sep 02, 2013 at 05:17 PM

i'm guessing about 30

Anyone going on the Sept. 19 Program # 8727 trip to Utah, canyons, etc.? Leaving from St. Louis, MO 9/18/2013.

Deanna & John Mooney Aug 12, 2013 at 05:11 PM

Anyone going on the Sept 9th trip?
foster mccurley Aug 30, 2013 at 03:27 PM

Yes, we'll be there; coming from PA thru Vegas. But we arrive a few days ahead to enjoy St. George and environs. Looking forward to this trip!
Harvey and Marjorie Huiner Aug 31, 2013 at 10:50 AM

We'll be there, also. We're come from VA, taking a long overdue road trip west, stopping often on the way out and back. The national parks of Utah has long been on our bucket list, so we are anticipating a great trip and meeting new friends.
Joyce Werner Sep 04, 2013 at 12:23 AM

We will also be there. We are coming from Illinois., flying in on Saturday so we can enjoy a few days in Las Vegas. We are looking forward to meeting everyone!
