Monument Valley The Road Less Travelled


TIME for TRAVEL

Monument Valley Get Inspired: Monument Valley, an iconic symbol of the American West, is the sacred heart of the Navajo Nation. In some West. The rugged, disruptive landscapes are infused with ancestral spirits yet are hauntingly familiar thanks to Hollywood’s long love affair with this land. Any visit to southeastern Utah must include a visit to Monument Valley — but be warned; this remote, inspiring place demands a closer look. You can take the scenic drive for a half-day visit and hit overlooks on the main highway, but you’ll find yourself longing to stay, to get closer to the monumental buttes that tower as much as 1,000 feet (300 meters) off the valley floor.

Know the History: This iconic symbol of the American West is internationally recognizable, having appeared in countless movies. Monument Valley was set aside as a Navajo Tribal Park in 1959. The Navajo word Tse’Bii’Ndzisgaii translates to “valley of the rocks” but the land has profound cultural significance. Like Arches and Canyonlands to the north, Monument Valley showcases eons of nature’s erosive power, yet has distinctive formations unlike anywhere else in the world. Source | VisitUtah.com

Looking for a fresh start this New Year?

Why not give your home a new and updated look with a fresh coat of paint.

You’ll be surprised how different your abode can look and feel by simply updating your color scheme. Whether it’s the exterior that screams for a much-needed update to oomph your curb appeal, or a lackluster interior that could benefit from a few new hues to bring your interior spaces into the year 2015, paint is an inexpensive and easy way to modernize your home. And the number one rule of color? Have fun! Just what should homeowners look for in trendy but true new colors for 2015? Nature and neutrals still reign supreme at Sherwin-Williams, with people looking for a haven from our technology-driven, fast-paced work world. Homes have become peaceful retreats filled with a cool, neutral palette: muted tans and blues, whisper-soft grays and greens, and creams are all in the mix this year. Of course, there’s also a place for more moody colors that give a nod to today’s futuristic vibe. Think supernatural and magical tones, such as deep sea blues, heavenly aquas, terrestrial gold-yellows and browns, and even cyberspace shades of black, which all make themselves comfortable in today’s vivid palette. Those looking for more cheerful colors need not fear. On the bright horizon are floral pinks and purples, and mellowed yellows and greens. The feel can be downright tropical. Expect to be seeing a lot of upbeat and pinky Coral Reef, as it’s the color of the year at Sherwin-Williams. Seems we’re feeling optimistic that the recession is behind us and the best is yet to come. Also look for bold, ethnic-inspired colors that reflect our collective anticipation of the upcoming Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Expect expressive takes on the primary colors, including turquoise blues, spicy yellows, and rich reds. Green is 2015’s big player over at Benjamin Moore. Guilford Green, a muted silvery-grayish green, is their color of the year. This light ethereal hue is a winner whether you’re looking for a neutral interior or exterior hue that everyone will love. (Get ready for lots of friends to copy!) In fact, greens of all muted hues abound on the hot list, keeping the organic, neutral look alive and well. The color pros at Benjamin Moore advise going monochromatic, with different shades of the same hue flowing from one interior room to the next. Sounds calm and tranquil … perfect for a peaceful New Year.
