Bryce Canyon Geology Festival » Even if they slept through the subject in school, anyone who has ever looked at the pillars of red rock at Bryce Canyon National Park has been intrigued at what shaped the area.

Paddleboard racing » It’s like the Indianapolis 500, except it’s on water, there are no motors, and they don’t go 500 miles. And it’s in Utah. But it’s still a lot of fun to watch paddlesboards race across Jordanelle Reservoir in the H2O Overdrive Summer Series. There’s categories for different ages and experience groups. Go to www.h2ooverdrivesummerseries.com/summer_series for more information.

WHERE » Jordanelle Reservoir, 515 W. State Road 319, Heber City
