Voices of Bears Ears — Ep. 4: The Cowboys – Shop Local

There’s real solitude in ranching. Cowboys like Adam Redd and Chase Murray were raised on the wide-open lands of San Juan County and daily experience the kind of solitude and beauty that people from the city yearn for. Head out on the Indian Creek Corridor Scenic Byway of Bears Ears National Monument for a glimpse of the storied lands and lifestyle of southeastern Utah ranchers. It all started for Redd with the arrival of his great-great-grandfather and great-grandfather by way of Utah’s famed Mormon pioneer Hole-in-the-Rock Trail, a path blazed through hardship and sheer will. Murray says something gets inside you that makes you like his way of life. “It's hard to explain,” he says, “But it's something that gets in your blood.” Learn more about how to visit Bears Ears National Monument at Get more inspiration and plan your Utah getaway here: Website: Instagram: Pinterest: Twitter: Credits: Director / DP: Mike Eldredge 1st AC: Tony Hagedorn 2nd Camera: Austin Balls Grip / Photographer: Matt Gagnon Executive Producer: Sandra Salvas Assistant Producer: Rosie Serago

Voices of Bears Ears — Ep. 1: The High Desert Adventurer – Shop Local

Local guide and adventurer Dustin Randall believes one of the best ways to see it is on a mountain bike. With the monument’s few paved roads, biking accesses abundant remote and hidden secrets, nestled among the exposed rock and high-country setting. From 12,000 feet down to the shores of Lake Powell, hike, bike, climb and carefully explore the starkly beautiful and fragile lands of Utah’s Bears Ears.
