I’ll never forget my first visit to Arches National Park ― I was in my early twenties, and it was love at first sight. As a young woman from t...
It's the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service, so Pam and I invited our friend Judy to join us on a 10-day road trip to the Four Corners where Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico meet.
I want to introduce this topic in the most basic form; Oxford Dictionary. Yes, a dictionary definition could be the most cliché article preface of all time, but there are few things that bring me similar satisfaction (other than peeling off a scab at the perfect stage...but that's gross).
This week has been rough for those of us in the LGBTQ community. First, the horrific murders in Orlando hit like a ton of bricks on Sunday morning. ...
For years, the most common slogan on Utah license plates was simply, beautifully, "Greatest Snow on Earth." A few years ago, plates bearing the new S...
The LDS church can be incredible for many people, I believe that. But I also believe that when you search your own heart and allow yourself to be one with the universe (or some may say the spirit) and something doesn't feel right, it isn't.

In the following years, I found myself feeling distinctly uncomfortable to the point of fearfulness around the homeless in Salt Lake City, whom the Smart family had tried to help by offering money and work around their home.
As the election year progresses, many candidates in both parties and at every level will say it. Child-welfare professionals work mightily to make it a reality. Our country's laws and policies are intended to promote its essential truth: Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, permanent and loving family.

Creating America's largest ski resort looks simple on paper. Take two ginormous ski areas -- Park City and Canyons -- build a connecting lift, and behold: America's biggest mountain destination! It's not that simple in practice.
