High Desert

Utah is a state in the western United States of America. With its population of only 3 million, it the country’s 10th-least-densely populated state.

The area is famous the world over for its natural diversity. Features here range from arid deserts to thriving pine forests in mountain valleys. This is because this rugged and geographically diverse state showcases three distinct geological regions: the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau. Meanwhile, the Wasatch Range runs down the middle of the state’s northern third, rising to heights of almost 12,000 ft above sea level.

National Parks here include Arches National Park in Moab, as well as Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park. All three boast dramatic rock formations, carved by eons of snow, wind and rain. In Arches National Park, rock twists overhead like modern art. Meanwhile, in Zion, sheer rock walls jut to the sky alongside the rushing Colorado River. Finally, Bryce features a jewel-like hole in the landscape, just waiting for the avid adventurer to trek inside.
