On the Spot

Laurel Casjens

Though she now works as a museum specialist for the State of Utah, Laurel Cajsens started out as a geologist, archeologist, photographer and museum curator. She says, “For fun I am a photographer, a potter, a rock art documenter, a traveler, a dog walker, and a lover of wild places. My wish is world peace, a clean environment, the protection of wild places, and a good life for my children.
