Salt Lake City, UT Skyline Pictures

With a total population of 1.17 million residents, Salt Lake City skyline pictures show a unique setting of modern skyscrapers and architecture set against the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountain Range. As one of only two major metropolitan areas in the Great Basin, Salt Lake City has grown to become the largest city in the Intermountain West.

Founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and other Mormon followers, Salt Lake City panoramic pictures show the metropolis home to the greatest percentage of Mormon faith practitioners in the U.S., comprising roughly half of the city's inhabitants. These religious traditions date back to the city's founding, when settlers built and farmed in the area to escape religious persecution.

The most easily recognizable building in Salt Lake City skyline pictures is the Utah State Capitol, which is a Neoclassical Revival style building in the Corinthian style. The EnergySolutions Arena, also known as Delta Center, is also easily located in Salt Lake City skyline pictures as the home of the Utah Jazz basketball team. The University of Utah is also a common sight in Salt Lake City pictures.

Because of its close proximity to the Wasatch Mountain Range, the picturesque setting of Salt Lake City panoramas is a popular tourist destination with strong outdoor recreation options, particularly skiing.
