Bryce CanyonUtah is located in the Mountain West. In the eastern portion of Utah are the Rocky Mountains, the Wasatch Range runs through the central part of the state and the Colorado Plateau dominates most of the southern part of the state. The western part of Utah is dominated by the Great Basin.

Utah is bordered on the west by Nevada, on the north by Idaho and Wyoming, on the east by Colorado, on the south by Arizona and as one of the Four-Corners states, touches New Mexico on the southeast.

Utah is the 13th largest state in land area with almost 85,000 square miles. Around 80% of Utah's population is centered around Salt Lake City. The concentration of people around Salt Lake city is a reflection of Utah's geography and its history. The mountainous and desert regions tend to be less populated because of the difficult environment and also the lack of economic potential. Also, historically Utah was first settled in the Salt Lake City area. In recent decades considerable growth has occurred in southern Utah around St George and Cedar City.

Utah has a history that reflects the settlement of the West in the 19th Century and it has played a significant part in the history of the American West. Both smaller and major cities throughout Utah, Nevada (Las Vegas), California (San Bernardino) and Arizona (Mesa) were founded by Mormon settlers.

Promontory Point is the place where the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads Zion National Parkmet on May 10, 1869 completing the nations first transcontinental railway. A symbolic gold spike was driven into the last railway tie and sparked the beginning of freight and passenger railway service across the west. Currently the place is memorialized as the Golden Spike National Historic Site.
