Each morning as I drive to work at the Red Mountain Resort in Ivins, Utah, I still can’t believe I am lucky enough to enjoy the view of Snow Canyon each day. The light bouncing across the towering red cliffs is magical, and I am constantly amazed at how blue the sky can be. More than the beauty however, are the components of conscious healthy living, that you find in this small city. The combination of performing and visual arts, heart-pumping hiking and biking, and easy access to nature in the wide open spaces of Snow Canyon State Park, fosters inspiring community spirit. I do love this community that protects its night skies, is home to a no-kill animal shelter, cares for our veterans, and considers growth thoughtfully.
