Kelly of Regis and Kelly high on soaring adventure

Kelly Ripa, the co-host of “Live with Regis and Kelly,” touted Soaring Tree Top Adventures on the morning talk show Monday.

Ripa rode the ziplines earlier this month at Soaring Tree Top Adventures and related her day on air.

“She and her husband and their three children were in Telluride and intended to visit New Mexico, but didn’t because of the wildfires,” Dionne Beggrow, one of the owners of Soaring, said Monday. “After asking what was hot in the area, they spent all day with us.”

Ripa rode all 27 spans of the ziplines that take visitors under the canopy of ponderosa pines.

Soaring Tree Top Adventures is half way between Durango and Silverton, with the only access via the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The resort opened to guests in 2004 and to the public the next year.
