The State of Utah it is unique in many respects, first of all for its geographical characteristics which, inevitably, also influence the life of the population. Sparsely populated, considering the size of the state, Utah is located west of the Rocky Mountains. The spectacle of nature allows you to see breathtaking landscapes, with chromatic varieties that are given by mountains covered with snow or woods in the north and expanses of apparent desert, canyons and sandstone hills in the southern part.

Utah borders Idaho and Wyoming to the north, Arizona to the south, Colorado to the east, New Mexico to the southeast and Nevada to the west.

Historical notes

Utah is a territory inhabited for millennia by native populations of American Indians, the name of the state itself derives from ute, the nomadic people who lived on the territory. There was complete freedom for the natives until the 1800s, when the Mormons arrived, fleeing religious persecution. The newly arrived sect is founded Salt Lake City and it requires independence and to be recognized as a state. Congress does not initially grant such recognition due to the polygamy practiced by Mormons themselves. When the President of the Mormon Church declares that he has received God's order to comply with the laws of the United States of America, Utah joins the Union.

To visit

The capital of Utah is Salt Lake City, known all over the world especially since the Winter Olympics took place there. The capital is in a privileged position, protected by the nearby mountains, a holiday destination for many Americans. Homeland of the Mormons, much of the population follows this religion even if the general line of the city government has always been rather progressive. Large shopping malls and buildings alongside neighborhoods with an older flavor.

Park city is a city in the mountains that has become a well-known ski resort, following the Olympic competitions, as well as being the technical training center for the US ski team.


The natural aspect in Utah is very important and evocative, as well as varied. In the north-eastern part, the mountains all rise over 1600 meters and numerous excursions are possible to discover those wild places.

In the south-eastern part, on the other hand, there is the canyon country, the most remote place in the state which was the last of all the United States to be mapped. Deep winding gorges are protected by steep red walls, all sculpted with time and the strength of rivers. Inside the canyonlands, one of the parks in the area, it is possible to go hiking, biking, climbing, among arches, pinnacles, rock spikes that create a landscape almost out of reality.

In the southern part of Utah, however, due to the prohibitive climatic conditions, it is not easy to camp overnight or stay outdoors for a long time.
