Utah's Diverse Geography

With elevations from 2,200 feet to over 13,500 feet, Utah's diverse terrain includes deserts, redrock canyons and forested mountains.

Utah's Geography

Covering 84,904 square miles, Utah is located in the crossroads of the Desert Southwest and Rocky Mountains. The land itself embraces everything from desert to alpine climate zones and is divided into three major landscapes: Basin and Range, the Middle Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Plateau.

Utah's Basin area includes the Bonneville Salt Flats stretching for miles into Utah's west desert and home of the world famous Bonneville Speedway. As part of the Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains to the east of Salt Lake City are famous for The Greatest Snow on Earth® and for their world-class winter and summer resorts. The red rock canyons, buttes and mesas of the Colorado Plateau in Southern Utah are home to Utah's five National Parks.
