About Utah


Utah (from the Ute for, “people of the mountains), located in western United States, is one of the most geographically endowed states in the nation. The Rocky Mountains, with their jagged, snowy peaks, run through the northeast corner of the state. The Basin and Ridge Region extends over western Utah, famous for the Bonneville Salt Flats. South and eastern Utah is distinguished by the Colorado Plateau, high country marked by striking canyons and deep valleys. Southeastern Utah is known as Four Corners, neatly touching the borders of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. The State of Utah is closely associated with the Mormon religion.

Mormons cultivated lands with irrigation when they first arrived in the mid-19 th century, but very little acreage in Utah is devoted to farming. Mineral exploitation spurred economic growth in the region, chief among them the mining of copper.

WWII brought industrial growth and military installations to the state, and more recently the manufacture of spacecraft, computer hardware, software and electronics have contributed to a dynamic economy. Coupled with a healthy tourism trade and petroleum production, Utah is living up to its state nickname of ,“Industry."
