Our Exotic Island… and the Antelope

mama kats“Take us somewhere local spot in your city and show us what we’re missing…you’ll be saving us thousands of dollars now that we won’t need to take that trip!”

Grab a cup of coffee … Buckle up… Play your favorite CD .. and drive… about 45 miles from my home is an island… Not the tropical banana tree coconut cocktail lounge chair on the beach kind I crave… But an island none the less… it is a beautiful drive… with a road built right out over the water to drive out to it… the smalls love to “drive on water” and really this little island has its own magical properties… even if lacking all the other magic.

There he is... The antelope the island is named after... Just kidding.. there are huge herds of them

These are much more common to site than the antelope… infact they are EVERYWHERE… their youngin’s are adorable and playful together though


Surrounded by the great salt lake (which smells like ass most of the time) the scenery is stunning


There are fun visitor centers and gift shops located on the island, as well as a few places to eat lunch… but I recommend packing a picnic.


There is also the ranch, which is so much fun for the smalls.. There are entertaining activities and things to see.

Just until the day I can afford the other kind of island 🙂

    That was definitely not the kind of island I was expecting, but it looks like fun. And it’s been about 20 years since I went to the great Salt Lake, but I can still remember what it smelled like. Lol. Nice post! I found you from Mama Kat’s linkup. 🙂

    Exotic indeed! The only thing you’re missing are palm trees, sand, surf boards! 😉
