Upon entering Utah, the snow-capped Oquirrh Mountains in November act as Utah’s welcoming committee. Coupled by the majestic Wasatch Range as the backdrop for the smog-filled bowl of Salt Lake City, these are just parts of what make up Northern Utah’s awe-inspiring landscape.
The natural landscape, rich with history, remains dominant in this region. Despite being home to the Natural History Museum of Utah in Salt Lake City and world-renowned slopes in Park City, it’s the landscape that provides a visual experience for both sightseers and adventurers.
The view of Northern Utah’s landscape, however, can only truly be taken in from a higher elevation. So, even on days when smog threatens the level of visibility in the city or unseasonably warm weather keeps the snow-runs short, a few hikes up one of the many mountain trails can lead to a priceless, breath-taking panorama of all that Northern Utah has to offer.
