Photo Essay: Into the Outdoors 

November 25, 2014 — By Camilla Simon

Camilla Simon was recently named Program Director for HECHO, a grantee of our Environment Program, where she served as Program Associate from 2008 until last month.

Standing just outside the town of Moab, Utah, I see a complex landscape—a place that is strange, intriguing, and beautiful.  My eyes scan the flat, reddish-orange and sage-colored terrain that seems to stretch on and on for miles, practically into another day. Then, the flatness stops. Up juts a gigantic red rock towering over the Earth, exposing hundreds of millions of years of geologic time on its walls. The La Salle Mountain Range hovers off in the distance on the horizon. Nearby, the Colorado River is busy carving through this rock and it reminds me of the immense scale of the natural processes happening here. These scenes are truly impressive, and the landscape is a ripe playground to explore. As a place to recalibrate from the busy lives that we lead today, it’s no wonder that it’s considered one of the best places in the world for outdoor recreation.
