Island. Yes, there is an island in Utah's Great Salt Lake. Surprise!
Home, home on the range . . . Yes, antelope do roam here in this little palm-tree paradise.
In 1845, John Fremont and Kit Carson discovered this lone island as they explored the Great Salt Lake.
These, along with several others, have been spotted on this island: Bison, antelope, coyotes, mule dear, and the jack rabbit.
One of my favorite things about this lovely piece of land are the beaches--wading beaches. You can bring your little ones (as young as 18 months!) here and let them wade in the water that gradually lends into the huge lake. It is SO gradual, that there is no threat of undertows or sudden drops. The only thing is that the water is saturated with salt and brine shrimp. :P
