Huston Smith
Huston Cummings Smith (May 31, 1919 – December 30, 2016) was a religious studies scholar in the United States. He wrote more than a dozen books, including The World's Religions which sold over two million copies and remains a popular introduction to comparative religion. His writings explain the value of each faith not merely on the academic level but share the experience of each as one who has lived them. Smith noted many common essential aspects among the world's faiths, including the reality of the divine, the existence of the human soul or eternal spirit, and the value of compassion and love. At the same time, he warned that extracting and reducing religious practice to only these values loses the beauty and mystery of faith that nourishes human beings.

Bryce Canyon National Park
Bryce Canyon National Park is a national park located in southwestern Utah in the United States. Contained within the park is Bryce Canyon. Despite its name, this is not actually a canyon, but rather a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Bryce is distinctive due to its unique geological structures, called hoodoos, formed from wind, water, and ice erosion of the river and lakebed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange, yellow, and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views.
