Antelope Island State Park

5/29/1997 Drove north up to Antelope Island State Park in the Great Salt Lake (crossing the causeway we went through clouds of bugs all the way - yuck!). On the island we first stopped for a walk on the nice sand beach. Tasted the water - very salty! Drove part way up a hill, the hiked 0.5 miles to the top of Buffalo Point for a great 360 deg. view of the island and GSL.

Escalante Petrified Forest State Park

9/18/2009 Back along the dirt road and continued on 12 to Escalante Petrified Forest SP, and an unplanned place I spotted on the map. Here I took a one mile hike up into the hills to see some nice petrified tree “logs”. Better stuff at Petrified Forest NP, but the hike was enjoyable and gave some nice views.
