Geography[edit | edit source]
Comprising an area of 84,899 square miles, the state's physical features range from arid deserts to pine forests. It borders Idaho to the north, Wyoming to the northeast, Colorado to the east, Nevada to the west, and Arizona to the south. Utah is part of the Four Corners, which is the only point in the US where four state borders meet.
The state is divided into three distinct regions: the Colorado Plateau in south and southeast, Basin and Range in the west, and the Middle Rocky Mountains in central Utah. The state has five national parks: Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Park. Great Salt Lake, Utah Lake, Sevier Lake, and Rush Lake are major water bodies in the state. Significant rivers in Utah include the Green River, San Juan River, Logan River, and White River. With an elevation of 4,125 meters, Kings Peak is the highest point in Utah.
Utah ranges from towering peaks, to desert dunes, and rugged basins. In western Utah, it is mostly arid desert with a basin and range topography. Small mountain ranges and rugged terrain punctuate the landscape.
The southeastern portion of the state is famous for rock formations and canyons of sandstone.
Eastern Utah is mostly dry, arid plateaus with very little population and mining as an important source of income for the few who live here.
Southwestern Utah is usually the hottest area of Utah as it is the lowest elevation in general. There are many smaller mountain ranges in this region as well where temperatures plummet.
The majority of the state's population lives around the Great Salt Lake, with the principal city being Salt Lake City. Another population hub is St. George to the southwest of the state. Most of the state is remote with very little population.
Climate[edit | edit source]
The climate of Utah is mostly semi-arid to desert, with hot summers and freezing winters. Higher elevations often see snow during the winter, and humidity in the summer is generally low.
Cities[edit | edit source]
There are 10 cities in the Utah Map Expansion.
Cities which are also in the 18 Wheels of Steel games are marked with " * ".
Note: Salt Lake City is in italic lettering since it is the state capital of the state of Utah.
