Utah – a state in the United States in the group of Mountain States, located in the Rocky Mountains. It borders Wyoming to the northeast, Colorado to the east, Arizona to the south, Nevada to the west, and Idaho to the north. The capital and largest city is Salt Lake City. Other major cities are Ogden and Provo.


The surface is predominantly mountainous. The central part of Utah is crossed by the Rocky Mountains. The high ridges of these mountains – Wasatch, Yuinta (the highest point of Mount Kings Peak, 4123 m) – alternate with desert plateaus: the Colorado Plateau in the east and the Great Basin in the west.

The main river is the Colorado with its tributaries the Green and the San Juan. In the north of Utah is the largest lake in the western United States – the Great Salt Lake.

Approximately 30% of the state’s territory is covered with forests, and about half of the forest area is federal property (several national forest reserves); in most of the forests, logging is prohibited.

According to itypetravel, the state is characterized by a continental, arid climate, with record low rainfall for the United States.


The first people lived in the Great Basin region more than 10 thousand years ago, they were mainly engaged in hunting and gathering. About 2,000 years ago, the Anasazi basket-making culture developed in the Colorado Plateau region. Then the Pueblo tribes settled here, numerous traces of whose activities, including rock caves, have been preserved in the southeast of the state. By the time the Europeans appeared, this region was inhabited by the Ute, Paiute, Navajo and Goshut tribes.

The first Europeans in the territory of the modern state were the soldiers of Francisco de Coronado (1540), who were looking for the Seven Cities of Cibola. In 1776, two Franciscan missionaries, Silvestre de Escalante and Francisco Dominguez, passed through here with an expedition whose purpose was to find a convenient route for laying a road between Santa Fe and the Spanish missions in California. By 1825 such notable trappers and fur traders as William Ashley, Jim Bridger and Jedediah Smith had visited. In 1843-44, John Fremont was the first to explore the Great Basin area. In the 1840s, Utah served as a transit area for many expeditions and settlers to California, including the infamous Donner Expedition in 1846, which brought the first Mormons from Illinois to Utah a year later. Members of this denomination, hiding from persecution,

On July 24, 1847, Mormons led by Brigham Young entered the Great Salt Lake Valley. A year later, after the end of the Mexican-American War, the territory of modern Utah was ceded to the United States. In 1849 the Mormons created the “Honeybee State” stretching from Oregon to Mexico and west as far as the Sierra Nevada, and applied to Congress for admission to the United States. Congress refused to recognize the state within such boundaries, but in 1850 decided to create a smaller Utah Territory, of which Brigham Young became governor. The history of the next few decades was marked by conflicts between settlers and Indians, especially the Ute tribe, which ended only in 1867 after the creation of Indian reservations here, as well as the struggle of the federal authorities with the Mormons, who were persecuted for polygamy. In 1857-58 events led to the so-called. Utah War, when federal troops were sent there by order of President James Buchanan to install a new non-Mormon governor of the territory. The completion of the construction of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 contributed to an intensive influx of immigrants, including non-Mormons, to the development of agriculture and industry. The constitution of the future state, adopted in 1895, had an unusual for those times provision for the right to vote for women. In 1896, after several refusals from Congress and 6 years after the official rejection of polygamy by the Mormons, Utah was admitted to the United States as a state.

At the end of the 19th – beginning of the 20th centuries. Numerous deposits of silver, gold, zinc, copper and other minerals were discovered here. Thanks to the development of the irrigation system, the expansion of agricultural land began. Military orders during both world wars contributed to the development of the processing and mining industries. In the 1960s, the state experienced intensive urbanization (now the majority of the state’s population is concentrated in large cities). Between 1968-90 the state’s population grew by almost 70%. The 1980s marked the beginning of the diversification of the economy with a predominant increase in the role of the service sector and tourism.


More than 200 types of minerals of industrial importance are mined in Utah; the most important are oil, natural gas, coal, and copper. The extraction of copper began as early as 1907, of oil in 1948; In terms of copper mining, Utah occupies one of the first places in the country. Nevertheless, the mining industry accounts for only about 3% of the gross domestic product, and no more than 5% of the population is employed in agriculture. More than 75% of the population is employed in the service sector. The main industries are mechanical engineering (production of construction and mining equipment), aerospace (aviation parts, components of rockets and spacecraft); production of electrical equipment; food, chemical and printing industry.


Utah has one of the nation’s highest birth rates and the lowest death rates. About 70% of the population are Mormons. Residents of the state are quite conservative in political views; in presidential elections they usually vote for candidates from the Republican Party.
