Utah - Magnificent Mountains & Lakes

Utah is located in the Western United States. It also became the 45th state to be admitted to the Union on January 4th, 1896. It is also bordered on the east by Colorado, Idaho in the north, Wyoming in the northeast, Arizona on the south, and Nevada to the west. Utah also touches a corner of New Mexico too. Utah's capital city is Salt Lake City and is the home of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.   Utah is also called the Beehive State and this is because the symbol of the beehive is associated with the state.  The beehive symbol is even included on the state flag.
Early Utahans, preferably those from the LDS Church viewed the beehive symbol as being the perfect thing to symbolize all of their industriousness and hard work. Therefore, the beehive symbol was officially adopted to represent the industry and perseverance that is Utah in essence. The symbolism and use of the “Beehive State” has been around since the founding of the territory itself by early pioneers.  The rest is Utah history.
Do come to Utah for a visit. Tourism is a major industry in this state and the reasons are obvious as to why. Not only is it an awesomely beautiful place to be. But it also well known for providing both outdoor and recreational activities year round. It also has lots of scenic background and natural wonders in abundance. Utah is home to five national parks that do include Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Park. Utah also has seven national monuments, in addition, and these include Cedar Breaks, Dinosaur, Hovenweep, Natural Bridges, Rainbow Bridge, Grand-Staircase Escalante, and Timpanogos Cave. There is also seven natural forests that range from Ashely to Caribou-Targhee to Dixie to beyond.  Moab, which is in the southeastern portion of Utah, has very challenging mountain biking trails, including Slickrock. Moab is also home to the semi-annual Moab Jeep Safari event. Northern Utah is also home to a lot of sky resorts and winter sports is a big thing in this state since the 2002  Winter Olympics was hosted in Park City, Utah.
Utah is a virtual paradise to all outdoor enthusiasts and it is a place of surprise for the variety it has in store for visitors of all ages. It is a place of true adventure from getting to witness a taste of the Old West to white water river rafting to historic top spots to then some.  
When you visit Utah, you can see this well planned  mix of the natural and man-made at Utah's terrific ski resorts and jewel-like reservoirs -- Lake Powell(one of the most-visited bodies of water in the country); Jordanelle Reservoir (a  gem) -- and woven into the state's rich and complicated history, a past populated by Utes, Mormon pioneers, mountain men, and others. In recent years, the state has boomed with  more and more people appreciating all that Utah has to offer in the American West.
