Antelope Island is a State Park (5$ per vehicle for Utah residence and 10$ for the rest) the Island is connected to the main land by a long bridge,it is the larges Island in the Lake ,has many hiking trails, fresh water springs,campgrounds ,an old farm and despite the name has a huge herd of Buffalo’s.
Here is some pre history & history on the Island,I could not say it better…
It was hot and no shade anywhere ,maybe it was better to visit the Island in the Spring,but we could not change our visit and still wanted to see this Salt Lake where one could float like in the Dead Sea back home.
The Buffalo herd was concentrated in one place and could be easily seen from the road without leaving the car.
Besides the Buffalo we saw birds and big spiders that are still growing accordingly to the Rangers.
The old farm was located almost at the end of the paved road ,it was once a nice ,active and proudly owned,today it is neglected ,dirty and dusty but has some nostalgic atmosphere while reminding us a “Kibutz” (collective farm ) back at home.
There was an old museum like RV in the yard,we sure made some progress in this field…
On the way back we managed to squeeze a short visit to the Mormon Square in Salt Lake City ,it sure asks for another thorough visit in the future.
We even found a replica of Jerusalem as the Mormons see it from far away .
It sure was another great day,but it is over and we are looking forward for new adventures on days to come.
