May Staff Photo Spotlight

This month’s Staff Photo Spotlight is on Nick Woolley, Director of Marketing at our home office in Salt Lake City, Utah. Nick’s photo was chosen for the month of May in our 2021 calendar.

Nick’s winning photo was taken on the scenic San Rafael River on a 15-mile stretch that flows through the Little Grand Canyon and the San Rafael Swell, in Central Utah. Nick and his friends were on an overnight kayaking trip on the river, hiking and looking for ancient petroglyphs, when he took his winning shot.

Great photo Nick! Thank you so much for submitting it to the Staff Photo Contest. We look forward to seeing more of your amazing photos.
