Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Our natural world around us is a beautiful sanctuary of the creator. I am thankful I can illustrate through photo and text the amazing beauty in the world we live in. The article for the November issue about Aspen trees that are leafless but not lifeless is an example of my thoughts that I enjoy sharing with others. I hope people in our community can be inspired by the natural sanctuary that surrounds us when we take a moment to see beyond the casual glance of our landscape.

Aviation and flight school were a passion for me and I have had difficulty with the loss of that part of my life. However, it has forced my to slow down and smell the roses, as they say. In that respect, this transition in my life has been a blessing. I enjoy photographing and writing about the beautiful world we live in and I come away a more religious man because of it. The more you study the natural world, the more you have to believe in the creator and acquire a passion for learning more about the landscape of our world.

My life has been blessed in many ways and I am appreciative. I want to move on with my life with more photography and writing. Most importantly, I want to do my best to take care of my wonderful wife as we grow older together. I pray about these things every day.
