Sure looks like Solidago! Canada goldenrod (Solidago canadensis)
And, it looks like it is found in Utah:

I never knew there were so many! Blinking



Thanks Lin for the ATP database entry, I wasn't sure which Goldenrod to put it in.

Any ideas on the second picture? Is it the same as the first?

No, these are not the same. The second might be in the sunflower family, maybe.

edit: I say that because the growth habit as it appears in the photo reminds me of Helianthus maximiliani but the blooms don't look quite right to me.

On this distance you simply cannot tell for sure. Do you have a close-up of the flower?

Compare the 2nd 0ne to Senecio douglasii
(threadleaf groundsel) which does grow in Utah according to Audobon

Looks very close!
Is this the one?
Threadleaf Groundsel (Senecio flaccidus)
