A sure sign that a new year is approaching is the publication of Utah’s official 2014 scenic calendar.
This is the 42nd year the Utah Office of Tourism has published a state calendar featuring photography and inspiring words about the state.
The calendars are sold individually for $10 plus tax and shipping, with bulk orders of 25 or more sold at the reduced cost of $8. They can be purchased online at www.uotstore.com or the Zion Natural History Association Bookstore located at Council Hall, 300 N. State Street.
This year’s cover features a photo by Moab’s Tom Till of the Needles district in Canyonlands National Park. The publication includes more than 40 additional images showcasing Utah’s diverse destination including national parks, forests, monuments, recreation areas, state parks, ski resorts, metropolitan attractions, annual events and outdoor recreation opportunities.
"We worked with 21 photographers to showcase the very best of Utah landscapes, outdoor recreation and culture and arts," said Vicki Varela, managing director of Tourism, Film and Global Branding of the Utah Office of Tourism. "It simply compels you to get out and celebrate our spectacular state."
In recent years, the calendar has been recognized by the National and World Calendar Awards with the last three editions receiving two dozen awards from the Calendar Marketing Association. Awards included Best Subject, Best Scenic Photography, Best Printing and Most Informative.
