The 45th state to enter the Union, Utah gets its name from the Ute tribe, whose tribal name means "people of the mountains." The Rocky Mountains feature prominently in the landscape of this state, though the Colorado Plateau and the Great Basin are also prominent geological regions. Utah has considerably high elevations, with an average of about 6,000 feet and a highest point at just over 13,500, which make this state excellent for skiing. In the summer, hiking and bicycling through the vast natural areas is also a common pastime. The largest city in Utah, which is also the capital of the state, is Salt Lake City, and this metropolitan area is home to nearly 80% of the residents of Utah. Most of the rest of the state is sparsely populated. Utah was settled by a group of Mormon pioneers in the middle of the 19th century. While most of the nation sees a lot of religious diversity, about 60% of the residents of Utah identify themselves as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This religious homogenization has influenced the government of the state, which prohibits all forms of gambling and greatly restricts the sale of alcohol throughout the state. The economy of Utah is largely dependent on ranching, mining and the production of salt. The Great Salt Lake, which Salt Lake City is situated around, is so salty that heavy objects can float on top of it. Both residents and visitors to the state can enjoy the many national parks in the state, which also enjoys a great deal of revenue from tourism.
