Northern Utah, is not the ultra religious right wing place that you painted here, and southern Utah is beautiful but not the utopia described either. I live in Utah and SLC is a tiny blue dot of liberal thinking in a giant red state of conformity. Southern Utah is full of 3 toothed sister fucking welfare fraud polygamist with varying levels of normal folk mixed in. In northern Utah if you don't "belong" to the hive you get weird looks. In the south they will run you out of town unless you're "kin", and I mean like cousins, via any means. Geophysical properties aside its a hellhole.
Oh its called the beehive state because of the shared mentality by the way. There are no more real bees (killer or otherwise) in particular to anywhere else on planet earth as far as I can tell.
Yes, its fucking weird.
