Utah is bounded by Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and Idaho; gross area, 84,990 sq. miles; land area, 82,184 sq. miles; water area, 2,806 sq. miles; capital, Salt Lake City. The principal rivers are the Green and the Grand, uniting in the southeast to form the Colorado. Among the lakes, the largest is the Great Salt Lake, which is about 80 miles in length and 40 miles in width; its waters are salt, and it has no communication with the ocean. Utah contains part of the great canyon of the Colorado, and has the Great American Desert, an extensive sandy and waterless plain west of the Great Salt Lake.
     The surface is similar to a basin surrounded by high mountains. The interior has an elevation of 4,000 feet above sea-level, and is crossed in a northeasterly and southwesterly direction by the Wasatch Mountains, with an altitude of 12,000 feet. The soil is as a rule arid and sandy, and in many places impregnated with salt. Much, however, has been reclaimed by irrigation and rendered profitably productive.
