State description

Utah is classified as a Mountain state. Despite the apparent uniformity of the landscapes, the “hive state” (the nickname of the state) is distinguished by a variety of landscapes and the quirkiness of natural forms. The state owes its name to an Indian tribe called Utah – “children of the mountains”.

Utah is located at the junction of three geographic regions – the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, and the Rocky Mountains. The highest ridge is the Wasatch (up to 4100 meters). The Colorado River and its tributaries (San Juan, Green River) flow through Utah. The climate in the state is arid, and the area is semi-desert. The woodlands found in the valleys and mountains are well preserved, as they are protected by law. In winter, the temperature hovers around zero, and in summer it reaches more than 30°. The subsoil of Utah contains gas, coal, oil, copper, silver, zinc, and gold.

The tribes of the Pueblo who lived here in ancient times left the mountain villages and interesting artifacts. They were replaced by the Ute, Navajo, Paiute, and Goshute. Back in the 16th century, the Spanish conquistadors F. de Coronado penetrated here in search of the mythical Seven Golden Cities. Detailed exploration of Utah began in 1774. For a long time, Utah was just a transit territory on the way to California. A great contribution to the study of the region was made by the Mautinmen hunters, as well as the Mormons who settled here in 1846. Two years later, the United States acquired Utah but refused to recognize the state of Deseret created by the Mormons. In 1850, the Territory of Utah was formed within the current boundaries. Indian reservations have been established here since the 1860s. In 1896, Utah became a state. In 2002, the capital of Utah, Salt Lake City, hosted the 19th Winter Olympics.

Utah is an amazing natural attraction concentrated mainly in five national parks. The symbol of Utah is the natural arches in the mountains formed over millions of years by weathering and erosion. Utah is a very popular region for the film industry. Many Westerns and other adventure, historical and fantasy films were shot here. The architectural symbol of Utah is the main Mormon temple in Salt Lake City. Utah has an excellent infrastructure for winter sports.
