This past weekend Bryce and I had the chance to head down to Southern Utah, once again. This time our destination was the Canyonlands area south of Moab. The Nature Conservancy purchased land in the area, and Bryce was part of the team that created the site design and plan for the new Canyonlands Research Center. The first phase of the project was completed a few weeks ago, and the director invited the team and their families to stay at the ranch. It was great to see one of Bryce’s many projects make its way from his sketches to the physical world, and it was fantastic. I’m in awe of his talent and love that he gets to create spaces of beauty that will be around for years to come. It’s practically the same as what I do ….
We explored Indian ruins (built by the
Anasazi/Ancient Puebloans), admired the petroglyphs at Newspaper Rock, poked around an abandoned uranium mine, and explored the Needles in Canyonlands National Park. On our last morning at the ranch, the horses got out and wandered over to where we were eating breakfast. I haven’t spent much time around horses, so I was especially happy to get to spend a little time up close with them. It was a wonderful weekend, and I am so grateful that Bryce loves adventuring and exploring as much as I do. He makes every outing a fun one.
