In August I promised to do a post on Antelope Island for My World Tuesday. Finally, here it is.
Although I have been to Salt Lake City many times for conventions for my business, I had never been to the lake. This time my family and I made a point to spend part of a day there, and we chose Antelope Island. Wise choice. We will go back every chance we get when we are in Salt Lake City.
We really thought the lake would be pretty non-exciting and smelly. It smelled a little, but was not bad. It might be worse at different times of the year.
We drove the 17-mile length of the island and took one hike. There are thousands of birds there as well as antelope and buffalo. (We only saw buffalo.) What a beautiful place. (Most pictures can be enlarged when clicked.)
The water was such an icy blue.
We hiked through these boulders, then I just sat and absorbed the view.
The boulders had many areas where the girls could play and hide.

We saw quite a few buffalo, but the bird on the back of this one makes it my favorite picture.
The terrain of the island as we drove from one end to the other.
This is the view one direction from the causeway as we were leaving. The number of birds along the causeway was astounding. And the colors and reflections captivated me.
