Kicking Off The 2015 Season
With the weather being so warm, we decided to get a jump on the 2015 season with a visit to Antelope Island State Park. This was our 4th time staying here and each time has been a great experience.
The views from the island are really something special. Its amazing that a place like this has been around for a really long time and yet, so many of us that live in the area haven’t been over to see it. Early and late season are our favorite times to visit as mid-summer can get hot and the bugs can get a bit out of control.
This time, Lily was working on her Jr. Ranger badge and so we dove a bit more into the history of the island. We all learned that the name Antelope Island came from a promise that was made in 1845 to the local Native Americans by two explores to pay tribute to the Antelope that they shot on the island. We also spend some good time exploring the Fielding Garr Ranch, which was build in 1848 and is the oldest Anglo built structure in Utah.
It is always good to get back out there and see what we have been missing. I use to really enjoy the 4 seasons but I have to say that now I am really more of a 1 season kind of guy… Camping season! I am really excited about 2015 and all the fun things we have planned.
