Watch Gigantic And Interesting Soaring Landscapes Awaiting You

Of all the states in western United States... Utah is the most unique with Southern Utah deserts and Northern Utah forests. Salt Lake City is situated neatly along the Wasatch Front mountains , which are an outcrop of the Rocky Mountain range.
