Wasatch Mountain Range, Utah

The Wasatch Mountain Range - A Site to See

20 million years have formed the Wasatch Mountains, a western range of the Rocky Mountains. These peaks stretch from Bear Lake in the north to Mount Nebo in the central part of the state.

Northern Utah

...Peak Your Curiosity

A road trip in Northern Utah might include motoring up Logan Canyon - loaded with high alpine scenery, campsites, and hiking and biking trails - to Bear Lake for boating and summer festivals. Train buffs can detour west to Promontory where the driving of the historic Golden Spike linked America by rail. Ogden's Union Station has its own railroad museum, as well.

Head south and visit the Hill Aerospace Museum that boasts a collection of planes and aviation memorabilia. On the way south through Davis County, look west and you can't miss the Great Salt Lake, and you'll want to check it out via Antelope Island State Park.  A causeway from Syracuse will take you to the island where you can view wildlife from shorebirds to bison.

Of course, you're never far from our Wasatch Mountains where we ski, snowboard, hike, bike, and camp to our hearts' delight.  In Northeastern Utah, the High Uintas Wilderness invites exploration on Horseback or with backpacks and fishing rods, or you can sneak a peek at Utah's Dinosaur past at sites near Vernal.

Maybe you'll just want to spend your time in the Salt Lake Valley, our largest metropolitan area. Here, you'll find Temple Square and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Utah Symphony and Opera, plus world-class ballet, theaters, events, museums, professional sports, dining, shopping, and nightlife. Park City, a resort town that famously hosts the Sundance Film Festival every January and is home to three world class resorts, is about a half hour to the east of Salt Lake.
