Utah by hand, on foot

Make pottery using ancient Anasazi techniques and tools, or hike through Zion National Park with new programs offered by Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah. In the “Touch the Spirit of Clay’’ group workshop, you shape pottery by hand and then decorate it using paint made from natural minerals and local vegetation, and native plant brushes ($100 per person every Saturday, 3-5 p.m.). Then explore Zion on an eight-hour adventure, hiking along exposed sandbars and cooling off in the shade of the 1,000-foot-tall canyon walls and the waters of the Virgin River ($199 per person with a boxed lunch, hiking poles, and water shoes). Room rates start at $189 per person per night, based on double occupancy. 877-246-4453,
