Road Trip VII – Great Salt Lake

We went to Antelope Island, a peninsula extending into the Great Salt Lake. Our hope was to see migrating shore birds and collect some sand from the beach. We were warned that the bugs would be bad and we should take protective action.

The birding was not especially good on Antelope Island. We were told it was better in a preserve about an hour North of us. We saw more mammals that birds.

We also saw some coyotes and Meg got some video of one of them grabbing a snack.

We didn’t have time to go to the Northern Sanctuary and failed to find a beach with the sand Meg wanted to collect. So this was not a complete success but we enjoyed seeing the animals.
