The capital of Utah and the world headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints (commonly known as the Mormon church) Salt Lake City (pop. 182,000) is situated approximately 15 miles south of the Great Salt Lake, for which it is named.  The distant, usually snow-covered peaks of the Wasatch Range, more than 9,840 feet high, enhance the beauty of the setting.  In 1825, an adventurous fur trader named Jim Bridger was the first white man to set eyes on the Great Sail Lake, the largest boay of water in the entire western United States.  The lake is also an incredibly saline body of water, second only to the Dead Sea.
Salt Lake City is home to the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir which has been singing the great choral works of the masters for well over a century.  In 1863 the Mormons started to build the auditorium that would become one of the finest in the world, the Salt Lake Tabernacle.  First used in 1867, the building is so acoustically sensitive that a pin dropped at one end can be clearly heard at the other end 175 feet away.  Its magnificent organ is recognized as one of the world's greatest instruments.
