Hiking Snow Canyon State Park in St. George, Utah

"I am a huge hiker; I go any time I can! Since I had never been to Snow Canyon before, a friend who knew how much I love hiking took us, and I already can’t wait to go back. I chose this particular photo because it shows how I use my passion for hiking to make every day an adventure. Also, my kids are always an everyday adventure, so when I can combine the two, the adventures are even greater!" — Shey Buckley, Licensed Sales Associate, Utah

On the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Arizona

"This picture was taken while I was on a road trip with my parents and some family friends to Vegas. We took a detour on our route home and decided to stop at the Skywalk. Convinced I wasn’t afraid of heights, I was really excited to go. But once I got to the Skywalk, I was shaking, and my dad had to hold my hands while I walked onto the ledge with my eyes closed. I try to live my life by always pushing boundaries, trying new things, and learning something that makes me better than yesterday. If I can do that, the day is a success. For me, the image captured an empowering moment when I was able to calm down and conquer my fear." — Michelle Lair, Specialist, Svc Quality | DMV Support, Arizona

At the Chabot Space & Science Center, Oakland, California

"It was 110 degrees, so a group us—three families with nine kids total—decided to go camping in the Chabot Space & Science Center since we knew the center had AC and would be fun for everyone. The photo is a good representation of our Northern California footprint as Chabot has lots of fun ways to engage visitors and expose kids to science. I appreciate what the center provides and wanted to give back a little love.

"My tips for visiting Chabot include planning out the shows you want to see when you get there, and making sure to take part in the live experiments happening all around!" — Edward Powers, Insurance Marketing, Walnut Creek Headquarters
