We are trying to plan a trip for the first week of October. I want to see mountains and experience some cooler weather, and my husband is interested in the National Parks to the South. First are the Alpine slides, zip lines and other activities open in October? Will we have a chance to experience fall colors? Do a lot of things to do close down between summer and winter. The only seasons promoted are summer and winter, not Fall. Also anyone know if the drive to Moab is scenic?
