Utah is a state in the west of the US. It is bordered by 6 states, which are Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico and Wyoming. The state capital is Salt Lake City, which is also the most populated city and is also the home of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, more commonly known as the Mormons.

The climate of Utah is one of a semi-arid nature. The winters are relatively mild and warm summers. The average temperatures for Salt Lake City in January are 28°f/2°c and for July are 78°f/26°c. Rainfall in Salt Lake City is about 17 inches per year.

Scuba diving in Utah is limited to lakes and quarries, as it is a land locked state. The most popular site is Homestead Crater, which is a geothermal lake that has a constant temperature of 95f throughout the year. Obviously, with this temperature, there is no fish life, but there are some interesting swim throughs. The depth is a maximum of 60 feet, with up to 40 feet visibility.

Blue Lake is another geothermal lake that has a temperature of 70f and therefore, there is fish life. Depth is 50 feet, with up to 20 feet of visibility.

Regardless of your destination, check your local travel advisory board or department for travel advice about that location when planning your trip and again shortly before you leave.
