On the Hill: Trip and fall 1,000 feet

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Ziplining through Alkali Canyon

Conditions: In Wolcott, the Alkali Creek has carved its way through the mountains to create the Alkali Canyon, although you wouldn't necessarily know it by driving alongside it on Hwy 131. By erecting six zipline features, Zip Adventures at 4 Eagle Ranch has created a way to see the canyon that provides views unlike anyone else has ever seen in its nearly 200 years of ranching history.

Today's weather: A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms between 1pm and 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 71. West northwest wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. — National Weather Service
