On the one hand, Zion Canyon is spectacular, because of course it is. On the other hand, it’s weirdly basic, just because so many damn people (like myself) from all over the world are going there all the time and taking a whole lot of pictures to put on their social media so they can show everyone the same incredible things that everyone else has seen and posted about on their social media. 🤷♂️
In 1909, our fattest U.S. president, William H. Taft, declared it the Mukuntuweap National Monument, using the Paiute name as recorded by the one-armed Union Army veteran-turned government surveyor John Powell, supposedly meaning “straight canyon.” 9 years later, the National Park Service director Horace Albright decided the name sucked, turned it into a national park, and changed the name to Zion, a name which the local Mormons applied to the canyon and which was easier to spell and pronounce for most tourists while still having an exotic air about it. #zion#zionnp#nps#nationalparks#utah#utahadventures#mightyfive#emeraldpools#courtofthepatriarchs#zioncanyon#utahhiking
Massage is for EVERYONE! Even YOU!
By: Shaelynn Brackett LMT, Social Media & Customer Service Goddess
There is a lot of reasons people think they don’t need a massage. They may believe it is a luxury, an indulgence of rich, bored housewives, that it has sexual undertones, etc. None of this is true. In fact, true massage therapy is incredibly good for your health, and an essential part of your preventative care. It has many benefits, and with all the different modalities available, there is something for everyone. Let’s talk about massage therapy and its benefits, and how it really is for YOU!
For the full list check out our Facebook Page!
There are as many as 250 different types of massage and bodywork, and the list keeps getting bigger. These modalities range from energy work (that doesn’t involve touch), to deep, rigorous work. Each modality uses different strokes, techniques, approaches, pressure, and movements as well as focus on different targeted areas. Each modality has a specific target and there could be multiple modalities for one issue. Massage isn’t just for vacation or the rich. Massage isn’t “sex work”. Massage is a necessity for your body! Do some research to find out what will work best for you and then go look for a therapist that will be your perfect fit. Happy massaging!
The #BearsEars Buttes and the #Daneros#uranium mine near #BearsEarsNationalMonument , #Utah 📷s: @timmydp Aerials flown by: @lighthawk_org
Grand Canyon Trust has appealed the BLM's approval of expansion plans for the Daneros uranium mine on the doorstep of Bears Ears and #NaturalBridgesNationalMonument . We did so because we believe that the BLM did not take a hard look at the potential impacts the mine expansion might have, and did not consider any alternatives other than what the uranium mining company proposed and doing nothing at all. The BLM now has until mid-October to respond.
The BLM approval would allow Energy Fuels to expand the Daneros Mine to more than 10 times its current size, from 4.5 acres to 46 acres, increase uranium ore production from 100,000 tons to half a million tons, and extend the life of the mine from seven to 20 years. The BLM decision also greenlights the expansion of the mine’s waste-rock, uranium ore, and low-grade ore storage sites twentyfold and allows Energy Fuels to construct up to eight new ventilation shafts and associated access roads anywhere in a nearly 1,200-acre area around the mine. Uranium ore recovered at the mine would betrucked through Bears Ears National Monument to the company’s White Mesa Mill.
#Radiation is particularly insidious because you can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, and yet it can be harmful to human health for generations. Instead of opening new and expanding old uranium mines, our society should be doing our best to clean up our toxic legacy for the generations yet to be born. We’re working to make sure that this mine does not add to that legacy.

There's an old saying ,"The best camera is the one that's with you". I was glad I had my #iphone on me one early morning at #bonnevillespeedweek last year. I have no idea why I was up at the crack of dawn. I went for a little walk to perhaps shake off the previous night's revelry. Most likely that was it. As I rambled alongside the road leading to the salt flats I heard a glorious symphony of pistons compressing and igniting fuel and air behind me. " Dammit, I wish I had my camera", I muttered to myself. I quickly realized I had my phone in my pocket, along with some bottle caps, and quickly whipped out Apple's best like an old gun fighter. I pushed a button and the digitized shutter sound completed what turned out to be my favorite photo of the week even amongst the hundreds taken on my professional grade DSLR.
Owning our own story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belong and joy (the experiences that make us the most vulnerable). Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. -Brene Brown

Many moons ago, an Indian named Norita and a brave from a rival tribe, named Grey Eagle met and fell in love. They planned to meet near a streamlet high on the mountainside and elope to a land far away from both their tribes. On that fateful night, instead of her lover, Norita was confronted by braves from her own tribe. Fearing her lover had been destroyed she leaped from the high ledges.
Mother Nature was touched by her wild beauty, and she caught up Norita's streaming tresses and made from them a Bridal Veil of falling water. From her flowing gown an alter was formed on the face of the mountain. Then her spirit was sent out as a mist, causing a green carpet to spread over the mountainside.
The intruders fled while her saddened lover stood and gazed down at the strange yet beautiful transformation. His grief was more than he could bear, so out of compassion for his sorrow, Mother Nature molded his massive frames into the mountain and stretched his mighty shoulders high into the heavens like silent sentinels to guard over his loved one. His cries of anguish were softened into love calls to whisper forever.
