Ahh… Utah!

Podcast Episode #11 – Ahh… Utah! 

My 30 year career has focused on international travel–that is where my heart has let me until recently when my daughter and I decided to do a research trip to Utah. 




This episode shines a light on two key destinations that are completely different and equally magical: Moab and Sundance. My guests are Mike Ballard, tour guide and founder of Big Iron Tour Co. and Donna Campbell, licensed massage therapist for Sundance Resort in Provo.
