Sunday Drive to Antelope Island

We've been enjoying the warmer weather around here and took a Sunday drive out to Antelope Island to see if Ellie was still a fan of the backpack. I plan on using it a lot more as the days get warmer, but was a little worried that Ellie might not enjoy it anymore, because she is so anxious to crawl around. She was a happy little girl the whole time, but it was only about 20 minutes. I forget sometimes what interesting and unique outdoor adventures are available just a short drive away. The water of the Great Salt Lake was so still and reflective that I felt like were were driving on a road through the sky itself as we drove down the causeway. It was eerie and beautiful and disorienting all at the same time. At the ranch we saw one of the resident great horned owls, who gave us a piercing stare. We also encountered one of the free-roaming herds of buffalo.

gorgeous pictures. It's so funny to think I grew up there and I've never even been to Antelope Island. That Ellie is just to die for cute!
