Utah is well known for many things. Aside from being the location of the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church), Utah has a very… diverse landscape. The mountains in the north are home to some of the most popular ski resorts in the world. The red cliffs in the south are unique and visited by millions each year. Many dinosaur species were discovered in the eastern part of the state. Utah is home to huge copper mines, lots of sheep and cattle ranches, and one of the largest saltwater lakes in the world. Salt Lake City is also considered one of the mosy gay-friendly cities in the nation and has quite a high openly gay population. See the "related links" below for photos and more information.
