Almost all of Utah’s nearly three million inhabitants live among the valleys of the Wasatch Front. As a result, much of the state is largely uninhabited and unspoiled. To the west of the I-15, the landscape is broadly desert. To the south and east, the soft sandstone has been etched by wind and weather over time to form stunning natural sculptures. Dotted throughout the state are pine forests, valleys and basins.
The climate is semi-arid or desert, with moisture coming chiefly from Pacific Ocean storms or Gulf of California monsoons.
