Utah is a U.S. state renowned for its scenic landscapes. The state includes deserts, canyons, forested mountains and rolling hills. As its geography features the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin and Colorado Plateau, Utah's striking national parks and ski resorts will cater to every nature lover.
Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah, and a good starting point for Utah holidays. There are also airports in cities such as Wendover, St George and Provo. When visiting Utah, remember that the time zone is exactly seven hours behind GMT. The climate of Utah is generally semi-arid.
Salt Lake City is the state's capital, located along the Wasatch Front (a metropolitan region in north-central Utah). As a former host of the Winter Olympics, the region is great for winter sports, with nearby ski resorts such as Park City Mountain Resort, home to the Sundance Film Festival. Among the city's architectural highlights are the Utah State Capitol and the Salt Lake Temple, the largest Mormon temple worldwide. The Great Salt Lake, the largest salt water lake in the Western Hemisphere, is nearby. Comprising over 3,000 square kilometres, the lake has an abundance of wildlife, and a great tradition for boating and sailing.
To sample the diversity of Utah's landscapes, travellers should experience at least one of its national parks. Visitors can see parks such as Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, which features vast sandstone buttes. The park is on Navajo land, and its rock formations can be appreciated on tours with members of the Navajo tribe. Stop off at the visitor center and museum to learn more about the area's heritage or sample Navajo cuisine. The Bryce Canyon National Park features heavily forested mountains and a large natural amphitheatre. In Glen Canyon one can visit Lake Powell, the largest man-made lake, which is surrounded by slick red rock.
