Antelope Island

My view from the plane as we headed to Salt Lake City and then Park City for a week of snow. I knew we were getting close as we passed over the mountains covered in snow. As we headed into Salt Lake City, I could see the sheets of ice over the Great Salt Lake. It’s not the salt water that is freezing but rain that has frozen on top as it’s falling over the lake.

A must stop before heading to Park City is Antelope Island. We were there in October of 2018 and it was a lot browner than our last trip. There wasn’t any snow in the area but you could see it far away on the mountains.

Looking back after driving over the long causeway into the park, everything looked brown and dead. It’s a weird thing to see since I’ve been living in central Florida for so long now. Many trees lose their leaves but most of the grass stays green.

The views from anywhere in the park were spectacular.

We did a short hike up to Buffalo Point where you can see all around the island.

Pano from my phone on the causeway as we headed out. We did see some ducks and buffalo on our drive through. More on those later.

  1. I’ve been to Salt Lake City a lot but not to Antelope Island. We were always headed somewhere else. My loss. I would love to see it.
