Utah: geography

Utah stretches 435 kilometers from west to east. At 4,126 meters, Kings Peak is the highest mountain in the country. Around 3.25 percent of the state is surrounded by water. The Great Salt Lake, located in the north of the state, has the largest share. Salt Lake City owes its name to this lake. The lake has an average depth of 4.1 meters.

The center of Utah is shaped by the Wasatch Range, a mountain range in the Rocky Mountains. This mountain range has a length of 350 kilometers and extends into the southern area of Idaho. There are many nature reserves in southern Utah. This includes the Colorado Plateau, which is crossed by gorges and table mountains. The well-known Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park are located here.

The history of Utah

In 1847, Mormon settlers first came to the Salt Lake Valley. At that time, Utah was still Mexican territory. On February 2, 1848, the area passed to the United States under the Treaty of Guadelupe Hidalgo. The Mormons wanted to baptize this place in "Deseret". But the government didn't allow that. The reason for this was the separation between the state and the church.

On January 4, 1896, Utah became a full member of the United States. Previous efforts have failed due to Mormon disagreements with the government. The reason for the argument was Mormon polygamy. It wasn't until 1890 that polygamy was abolished and the way to the state was clear.

Between 1863 and 1872 there were several disputes with the indigenous population. These disputes are known to many under the name "Black Hawk War". Many Indians died in these battles. When minerals were found by the troops, more and more non-Mormon settlers came to Utah. They moved to the territories where the Indians had previously lived. With the construction of a rail link, more settlers came to Utah.

Utah has been a popular vacation destination since the 20th century. The impressive landscape contributed to this. Zion National Park was opened in 1919 and another national park in 1928. In 2002 the Olympic Winter Games were held in Salt Lake City.
