JUST THE TIPPET

Fly Fishing Utah’s Green River
IMAGES BY CHAZZ LAYNE

I took a Myers Briggs personality test once. It categorized me as The Executive. “You are an assertive and charismatic extrovert that thrives on solving problems and gains energy from socializing. You have a knack for managing things, but struggle to empathize. You are a better talker than listener, and prefer structure to spontaneity. You have difficulty relaxing.”

Every tourist board is trying to convince you that their state has something for everyone. Spoiler alert: They Don’t. Surprise: Utah does. Nope, I do not feel even an appropriate amount of guilt over my new home being disproportionately fantastic and no, I will not hide Utah’s light under a bushel. I plan to proudly expose this secret for all its glory—then beg you not to tell your friends.

Utah is derived from the name of the Ute Native American Tribe, meaning “people of the mountains.” This gorgeous state has 3 distinct geographic regions, 5 national parks, 44 state parks, 5 historic sites and trails, and a dozen national monuments and recreation areas.
