A:Captain Zipline’s zips in Salida, Colorado, are shorter than many others you’ll find, but they’re definitely among the most heart-pounding. Its seven lines, which run from 200 to 700 feet, hang above a deep canyon carved by the roaring Arkansas River near Salida. You'll go hurtling through the trees at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, past the ruins of old mining claims and fleeting views of 14,000-foot peaks.
