Kayenta-h-h-h! Kayenta is an artistic desert community that is nestled at the floor the magnificent Red Rock Cliffs in Ivins, Utah.  Upscale adobe-style homes tend to blend into the surrounding high desert terrain and red dirt softscape.  Coyote Gulch Art Village, located in the heart of the community, maintains a few art galleries, studios, Xetava Gardens café, coffee shop and gift store and is a local favorite gathering place. The city of Ivins, located just outside of both St. George and Santa Clara, Utah is near Tuacahn, a world-renown outdoor amphitheater) and Snow Canyon State Park. Thousands of tourists converge upon the area every year, many decide to become residents. To me, the high desert scenery and surrounding red jutting cliffs exude a timeless beauty, they are pure inspir...

When you seek the perfect community in southern Utah, take a look at the Kayenta Desert Community.  It's a unique departure from the norm.  This tranquil, enclave community is in southern Utah's red rock country that's surrounded by protected lands.  A master-planned community of fine homes made up of 2,000 beautiful acres, Kayenta Desert Community can be found just seven miles west of St. George, Utah.  Once you visit the Kayenta Desert Community, you too will see just how unique this community is.  The builders were completely focused on moderate land use, an appreciation for natural settings and moderate-sustainable growth. Residents find adventure within the Kayenta Desert Community and all around the southwest's abundance of places to explore.  Snow Canyon, Zion National Park and B...

 As a lifelong lover of animals, cows are high on my list of favorites! It must come from the fact I was born in Owatonna, Minnesota and my family owned a farm. I used to ride Daisy in, the lead cow when it was time to come from the fields. I seldom see the cows and bulls close to the fence and found my opportunity to take some pictures coming from an open house in Ivins, Utah. Soon enough I was playing a game of peek-a-boo with this white cow. It got me laughing (it obviously doesn't take much to entertain me!) and I can just imagine what the rest of them were thinking! ...Mooooove a-way cud I sed so!

In a previous post, http://activerain.com/blogsview/1505801/speechless-sunday-almost-off-to-the-races-, I had a photo of some bronze horses racing in the desert, a most spectacular sight as you approach this round-a-bout in Ivins, Utah. This entire scene was created by sculptor (and Ivins City resident), Edward Hlavka. This artist's abilities far outreach any boundaries regarding imagination. He was also responsible for designing and building the realistic sandstone jutting cliff that is at the center of the scene. This scene is to be enjoyed face-to-face because my photos cannot do it justice. The detail in the rocks, sandstone bluff & cliff, the indian on horseback and the mustangs are amazinging realistic! The first time I saw it I went round and round and round to capture the excite...

Last week I received a gift certificate for a Golf Lesson from the Golf Pro at Entrada Golf Club, a private golf course surrounded by luxury custom homes located in sunny Southern Utah. Hmmmm...I wonder what he will teach me opposed to what I may learn. At this point there are two things that come to mind. This will increase my ability to swear at any given time on the course Also, this will teach me how to properly wrap a club around a tree I golf for fun and yes, I am a hacker. I figure if I was a golf professional and was getting paid to perform, that would make things different. So, if you're out there on the course and you hear, "FORE", that most likely will be me, so DUCK! and enjoy your day!
