Defending Utah

I find myself defending Utah every now and then.

But the more I think about it, Utah doesn’t need a lot of defending.

We have a number of majestic national parks. We are an educated group. Most of our school are a safe place to send your kids. Residents can drink the water without getting ill. We have lakes and streams and forests to both hunt and fish.

Have you skied the powder in our mountains? Have you driven through the red rocks of southern Utah? Or hiked Angel’s Landing at Zion? Have you dropped a ski at Pineview Reservoir?

The people I hear making fun of Utah probably haven’t visited many states outside of Wyoming or Idaho.

Yep, we have some strange liquor laws. Sometimes the dominant religion puts its thumb on the political scales. The air isn’t great around the Salt Lake area during the winter months, and you will drive behind a lot of minivans and big ass trucks.

But hey, have you been to other states?
