September 2017
Fall is a great time to travel, especially here in the West.  We have a number of programs in this month's lineup which are still available before the weather turns, plus some looking ahead toward the new year.  Happy browsing!

Tap into Travel
Featured Tour:  Lake Powell

Explore the majestic beauty and hidden gems of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Recreational area on this most unique SpecTAPular adventure aboard a luxury houseboat.  Enjoy fishing, kayaking, stargazaing, fishing, water-skiing, and swimming, or just relax on your houseboat as the scenery moves by.  This is an experience not to be missed!

What We're Working On
In 2018 we'll be offering two trail tours - one new to us, and one an old standby. 

May, 2018:  The sturdy pioneers of the California Trail in Nevada are celebrated each spring at the California Trail Center in Elko.  In addition to all the interpretive activities, Native dancers, campfire cooking, and other demonstrations.  This six day program will also include the Mormon heritage of Salt Lake City, the Nevada Northern Railway Museum and yards in Ely, Great Basin National Park, and much more.

July, 2018:  We first headed down the Lewis & Clark Trail in 2001 and for many years we ran as many as three departures per year. When the Bicentennial Celebration of the trail had run its course, we cut back to one per summer, but have run it only every few years since then.  Increased inquiries recently have encouraged us to offer it again in 2018.
