a: Salt lake city ~
b: landing in some California town

What: "Salt Lake City is an oasis in Utah. The rest of the state is full of non-thinking, non-questioning right-wing nutcakes but Salt Lake is like landing in some California town. Seriously. Except for the screwed-up liquor laws (which Rocky has fought to change from the get-go)."

The Metaphorical Urban Planning

a: Salt lake city ~
b: an island in the midst of nothing

What: "Salt Lake City is like an island in the midst of nothing, and I think that the geography fits in nicely with how the original Mormons must have felt as they began to create their city, that they were creating a holy stronghold in the midst of a sinful world. Interesting, the juncture of geography and mindset."

Salt Lake Vs Denver

a: Salt lake city ~
b: a mirror image of Denver

What: "Salt Lake City is like a mirror image of Denver. It sits on a flat plain (next to a Salt Lake would you believe) with the Rocky Mountains rising dramatically like a wall to the east behind the city (Denver sits on the edge of the great central plains of the USA and has the eastern edge of the Rockies rising majestically in the west behind it)."
