Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake

I never shared the pictures of our vacation on the way home and decided that it was time to get us home. 😉

After we spent some time with the family during the Family Reunion, we headed home, again making stops along the way. Before we left Utah, we had to stop at Antelope Island and explore a bit. Mr. Bug and I both have memories from our past that we have shared with the girls and they were interested in going.  Here are some pictures of the day:

Antelope Island Beach

The girls were having fun exploring. The beach is rather long, so the dark blue is the lake. In the middle of the blues are mountains and then it turns to sky.

Antelope Island Beach Treasures

Gathering treasures – can’t go anywhere without that experience!

Antelope Island Snake Track

On the way back to the car, we found this snake track. Yikes!

Antelope Island Birds and Brine Flies

The brine shrimp and flies are so thick by the shore. You can actually see them part as the birds walk through the water eating. There is definitely a smell, too. Ewww!

Antelope Island Mtns in Salt Lake

In the middle of the island you can see the mountains. It is a neat place – there is even a bird rookery there. It was full summer (read HOT!) and we were in a hurry so we didn’t hike down to it.
