State Overview

Utah is an alteterre region traversed from N to S by an alignment of mountain ranges, the main one being the Wasatch Range; to W the arid and inhospitable lands of the Great Basin extend, to E a large sector of the Colorado Plateau, divided into minor highlands by some reliefs (Uinta Mountains, Book Cliffs). The Colorado Plateau is crossed by the river of the same name and its tributaries (Green, Dirty Devil, Escalante, San Juan rivers), in whose valleys erosion has given rise to fantastic shapes, of which the most spectacular are those of the National Parks Capitol Reef, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Natural Bridges, Cedar Breaks, Zion. The Greater Basin sector affecting Utah is an areica area, devoid of surface water, to W, and endorheic to E, as the rivers that flow into the Bear, Jordan and Sevier rivers pour into the Sevier and Utah lakes and in the Great Salt Lake. The main economic resources are agriculture (cereals, potatoes, sugar beets, fruit), livestock (sheep, cattle) and forest and subsoil exploitation (copper, gold, oil, lead, zinc, silver, iron, coal, uranium and salt); the industries, which operate mainly in the engineering, food and chemical sectors, are located in the capital and in the cities of Ogden, Provo, Bountiful, Orem and Logan.


After the explorations of French and Spanish in the sec. XVII and XVIII, the first American settlements were implanted there by Mormons, who in 1847 settled in the area of ​​the Great Salt Lake. It belonged to Mexico until 1848 when it passed to the USA with the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Erected in the Territory in 1850, it acquired its current borders with an economic and civil development much higher than the rest of the Federation. It was often at odds with the federal government itself; in 1857-58 Washington sent federal troops there (Utah War). Only after the Mormon Church had repudiated polygamy (1890) did Utah become a state (1896).
