Utah's bid for statehood was accepted in 1896 over forty years after its initial request.

One of Utah's most defining characteristics is the variety of its terrain.  From the Uinta Mountain range in the north (being the only east west running mountain range in North America) to the beautiful desert landscapes of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks.

Another notable fact about Utah is that the continental meeting of the railroads happened at Promontory Point, Utah.
