Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

The Fisher Towers near Moab, Utah, are known for their loose rock and difficult aid climbs. A few popular routes, such as the Colorado NE Ridge (5.8 C2 IV) are climbed regularly. A few pitches up, a group of highliners put up a line between the Kingfisher (left) and the smaller neighboring tower. Despite the snowy and dangerous conditions, world-record holder Faith Dickey is seen successfully walking the line.
