USA ~Utah~

Great postcard from the USA showing the many contrasts of Utah... great mountain ranges, rock formations, fields of flowers, canyons...In 2002 Utah became the fifth state in the United States to host the Olympic Winter Games. Thanks Sarah!!

Utah is a state in the Western United States. It was the 45th state to join the Union. Utah is the 13th most extensive, the 34th most populous, and the 10th least densely populated of the 50 United States. The name "Utah" is derived from the name of the Ute tribe and means "people of the mountains" in the Ute language.Utah is bordered by Arizona on the south, Colorado on the east, Wyoming on the northeast, Idaho on the north and Nevada on the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico.
Utah is the most religiously homogeneous state in the Union. Approximately 60% of Utahns are reported to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church, which greatly influences Utah culture and daily life.
