Utahns love to bask in the beauty of this state. We visit its cities and hike, bike, camp and picnic in its natural surroundings. Utah during the daytime is stunning, and the subject of some beautiful photos. But Utah at night is also amazing! Here are 16 photos that will prove that the beauty of our state is every bit as unbelievable after the sun goes down.
1. Utah State Capitol
Is it just me, or does the State Capitol look better after the politicians have gone home for the night?
2. Arches National Park
This photo of the Milky Way over the Garden of Eden in Arches National Park is magical.
3. Canyonlands National Park
Here’s another great shot of the Milky Way, this time at Canyonlands National Park, over Mesa Arch.
The drive was worth this view.

A quiet shot of a Boy Scout overnight trip. I’m betting that it was a little less peaceful than it appears in the photo.
