In Utah, there are no bad things in the water there. It’s just smooth, really beautiful.” – Steve Guttenberg
Utah – is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 33rd-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States. Utah has a population of about 2.9 million, approximately 80% of whom live along the Wasatch Front, centering on Salt Lake City. Utah is bordered by Colorado to the east, Wyoming to the northeast, Idaho to the north, Arizona to the south, and Nevada to the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico in the southeast. – Wikipedia
Recently I spent the week travelling through Utah and around the Salt Lake City area for work. I’d only been in the US for around 2 weeks at this point and was just starting to settle in.
It was amazing how almost as soon as I crossed the state line in to Utah that I fell in love with the place. Driving through the gateway to the Grand Canyon is so surreal. Surrounded by by massive red rocks that seem to have exploded up through the dirt simply takes your breathe away.
I just can’t do the scenery justice around here. It’s like everything you have ever seen from any old western movie, right here before your very eyes.
One minute it’s bright red rock carved out of the earth, then next, lush green trees, beautiful creeks, rivers and snow capped mountains.
Unfortunately as this was a work trip I didn’t get much of a chance to have a good look around and take many photos. But one thing is for sure, I’ll be back here real soon!
