During my decades of travel across southeast Utah, I have come to know this country in all seasons. Muted midwinter light rests gently on the mesas, the red rock landscape subdued with a dusting of snow. The brilliant sunlight of midsummer intensifies the harshness of the landscape, its ruggedness revealed in jagged shadow. The cracked earth and parched plants of a scorching July day are transformed in minutes by monsoon rains, releasing long dormant scents that are imprinted in my memory. .

On my way back from a quick adventure on Antelope Island I looked out across the Great Salt Lake and the city lights just glistened in its stillness. I had to stop and get a shot. . When I was able to see the shot on a larger screen I was surprised to see the details I had actually picked up. Not only the reflection of the lights on the lake, but also the backdrop of the mountains and the stars in the sky. . Just goes to show, keeping your eyes open for things you may not have initially expected can turn out to be great things! .

Most of us are consumed with our own thoughts and desires and are not always thinking about what other people may want. This is not necessarily being egocentric; it is just being human.

When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. ~ Psalms 61:2 . . Finally caught a bit of that alpenglow on the backside of Cascade peak last Wednesday and it filled my soul with indescribable peace and wonder. How I love those snow-capped mountains! My soul lives here. 🏔💛🙋 . . . . . #provocanyon #mountainlovers #amazingphotohunter #jaw_dropping_shots #majestic_earth_ #landscape_joy #planetawesome #ourdailyplanet #theworldshotz #landscapescapture #awesome_photographers #earth_shotz #Utah #beutahful #visitutah #wowutah #utahunique #utahgram #utahisrad #naturalutah #utahillustrated #werutah #xputah #nature_perfection #master_gallery #westbysouthwest #adventurenthusiasts #earthfocus #igsouthwest #wondersofourplanet

In winter, the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. Summer is more wooing and seductive, more versatile and human, appeals to the affections and the sentiments, and fosters inquiry and the art impulse.

Chased by moose☝️ Throw back to last year. Snow was deep and this gal didn't want to give way to the packed trail. As you can see we obliged, especially once we saw her hair bristle.

The lift ride to get to the top of the mountain takes a while, but the view is worth it.

This Utah winter has been crazy. There’s not enough snow to snow shoe, but enough that you need something to hike. These YakTrax traction cleats were perfect to get us up the mountain. Love, love, love being in the mountains! Before our hike I was tired and didn’t feel like going. Five minutes on the mountain and I was rejuvenated and so happy we went. • • • • • • • • • • #girlsgoneadventuring #adventure #hiking #utahcounty #horsetailtrail #yaktrax #hikingblogs #foryourmountain #lasportiva #utahunique #utahgram #utah #werutahgirls #slcmoms #onlyinutah #youtah #utahillustrated #utahvalleymoms #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful

At the heart of the Plateau and the center of our story lies San Juan County, Utah, an 8,000-square-mile expanse in the southeastern corner of the state. The poorest and one of the most sparsely populated counties in Utah, it is bordered on the east by Colorado’s San Juan and La Plata mountain ranges; on the west by the sinuous path of the Colorado River; on the north by Moab and the eastern half of Canyonlands National Park; and on the south by the Arizona state line and the Navajo Nation. Within its boundaries lie wild, exquisite canyons and high mesas; the meanderings of the Green, Colorado and San Juan rivers passing under towering cliffs surrounded by rich riparian areas; the watershed and forests of the majestic Abajo Mountains. There are a seemingly infinite number of buttes, arches, natural bridges and pinnacles that punctuate the vast expanse of sky. And there is the dramatic Comb Ridge, a jagged 1000- foot-high monocline known to Native peoples as the backbone of the earth, snaking 60 miles northward from the Arizona border. Unique communities of plants and animals have evolved to survive in an arid land where temperatures exceed 100 degrees in summer and dip well below freezing in winter. .

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

Debating if the ice castles are more beautiful in the night or day. At night the ice lights up with beautiful colors and have fire performers.

To me, the message of Martin Luther King Day is one of hope and healing, of inclusiveness and kindness, of volunteering service for another, of community service and love. And beautiful sunrises. It's definitely about beautiful sunrises. Blessings and peace to you and your loved ones.

from @slcdave on 1/1/18 - Tonight’s supermoon will be the biggest and brightest of 2018. Step outside and take a look. I tried lining the moon up with the peak on the left. My calculations were a little off but I’m still pleased with the results. . . . . . . . . . . . #utah #supermoon #supermoon2018 #slc #moonrise #moonrisekingdom #utahunique #werutah #exploreutahofficial #experienceutah #natural_utah #weliveelevated #getoutstayout #earthpix #earthfocus #viralexposureutah #xputah #utahillustrated #igersmountains #GetOutdoors #OptOutside #BeAUTAHful
