How could my "U" for the ABC-Along be anything else?
Utah is a place I have had a love-hate relationship all my life. Not being one of the 'predominate culture' can be rough, but there are too many good things about living in Utah, so there is little need to complain about the not so good.
The number one reason to live in Utah is its beauty. Northern Utah has the majestic Wasatch and Uinta Mountains, both of which are minutes from nearly every front door. Recreation opportunities can be had year round and if you don't recreate you can just absorb the beauty by looking up.
Southern Utah is a whole nuther thing. When No. Utah is considered high desert country, the southern part of the state is the real deal when it comes to red rock and sand. The landscape is very unique and awe-inspiring in a completely different way than the mountain country. The National Parks of the area are 'must see' destinations if you travel West.
Utah Pictures is a fabulous site full of Utah pictures (what else?) from all over the State. Be forewarned, there is sound and the first time I heard it I about fell out of my chair. Most of my ABCAlong posts have been places in Utah and you can check them out here.
