March/April 2019


Join us as we embark on a journey through Utah with Utah Life’s March/April 2019 featuring:

Utah Life Magazine has prepared another adventure around our state, from a backcountry gulch in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, to the bustling Lion House historical restaurant in Salt Lake City, to dives into the lives of former Utah residents like Edward Abbey and Fay Wray.

  • Photo essay on Beauty and the Beasts: Nothing says spring along the Wasatch like a mountain goat, a moose or a bighorn. Or, as we like to call them, animals with headgear.
  • A group of backpackers returns from remote Coyote Gulch with two messages: 1) You’ll never be the same. 2) Beware the intelligence of ravens.
  • Despite a poverty-stricken childhood in a Utah mining town – or maybe because of it – Fay Wray, the star of film’s first King Kong, found success in Hollywood.
  • Half a century ago, an eccentric author named Edward Abbey wrote about his ranger days in what is now Arches National Park. Desert Solitaire established him as an icon of the environmental movement.


  • Lion House Pantry Restaurant welcomes visitors into Brigham Young’s Salt Lake City home for some homey fare – and shares its recipes for its famous dinner rolls and beloved chicken pot pie.
  • Honeycomb section: Our quick-read features spotlight a St. George farm that tells a 3-D dinosaur story, Ogden’s commitment to rejuvenate the monarch butterfly, a Draper construction company that puts art along Utah’s highways, a Vernal photographer who used Fremont and Ute artifacts to impress the local kids, and a study of gender and how that relates to mortality and survival along the emigrant trails.
  • Even if you’ve seen Canyon Country, that doesn’t mean you’ve seen all of Canyon Country. Three winners of the Monumental Exposure contest reveal three very different facets of Utah’s canyons.
  • Of hogs, college students and fur trappers: Our Utah Trivia expert matches the counties in the state with fascinating facts.
  • Our Utah poets put pen to paper to express their visions of Utah’s creeks and rivers.
  • Explore Utah section: The St. Patrick’s Day parade in Salt Lake City, pond skimming in Park City and the Easter weekend art festival in St. George are among the March/April events designed to entice Utah residents out on the road.
  • Mailbox: Have we heard from you yet?
  • Last Laugh: Somehow, Kerry Soper has unearthed a recruitment letter from the Utah Jazz organization. P.S.: It’s funny.
