History Of National Utah Day

In 2017 people began celebrating each state in the order they entered the union. As the 45th state to gain statehood, Utah is home to The Great Salt Lake, a deeply rooted Native American heritage, and a far-reaching desert history. Utah’s mountains, high plateaus and deserts – containing the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere, at the state capital of Salt Lake City – are bordered by Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona at right angles. The “Four Corners” are the only such arrangement in the U.S.
