Around Utah

Utah gets its name from the early Ute people of the region.

States neighbouring Utah are: Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

Half of the State of Utah is spread out on the Colorado plateau, 1,200 metres above sea level, where minimalist landscape photographers will enjoy the variety of shapes and colours in changing light conditions.

The Colorado River has beautifully carved many gorges and canyons, as it twists and turns through the soft sedimentary rock of the plateau.

An excellent example is the Meander Canyon in Dead Horse Point State Park, in eastern Utah.

Nature rises and falls dramatically in Utah, with King's Peak top of the ranges at 4,123 metres. The state is an ideal location for winter sports enthusiasts.

Those seeking solitude can also have plenty of that, and it is not without reason that the Mormons originally set themselves up here in 1846-1847, when it was still a part of Mexico.

Utah Travel Tips

Tread Lightly, Leave no Trace

1. Tread lightly when travelling and leave no trace of your camping. Drive and ride only on roads and trails where such travel is allowed. Hike only on established trails, on rock, or in washes. Camp at designated sites or, where allowed, at previously used sites. Avoid placing tents on top of vegetation and use a camp stove instead of making a campfire. Unless signs indicate otherwise, leave gates open or closed as you find them.

2. Help keep Canyon Country clean. Pack out your trash and recycle it, cleanup after less thoughtful visitors, and dispose of human waste properly.

3. Protect and conserve scarce desert water sources. Camp at least 50 feet from isolated water sources to allow for wildlife access. Where possible, carry your own drinking water. Leave potholes undisturbed and wash well away from pools and springs.

4. Allow space for wildlife. When encountering wildlife, maintain your distance and remain quiet. Teach children not to chase or pickup animals.  Keep pets under control.

5. Leave historic sites, Native American rock art, ruins, and artefacts untouched for the future. Admire rock art from a distance and never touch it.  Stay out of ruins, leave artefacts in place, and report violations.
