Antelope Island - wyspa rezerwat, mieszkają tu bizony i kilka innych stworzeń, które potrafia wytrzymać na tej pustuni, zero drzew tylko sucha trawa i gdzieniegdzie jakiś krzaczek. A woda w jeziorze i tak słona.
Z rańca pakujemy auto i opuszcaamy SLC, ciocia zostaje na chacie - dzis ma byc strasznie gorąco a na wyspie i bez tego ciężko jest wytrzymać latem. Po godzince jazdy docieramy do parku i dalej drogą na sztucznym nasypie na sama wyspę. Najpierw wjeżdżamy na wzniesienie - dla lepszego widoku oraz w poszukiwaniu bizonów - niewidzimy ich ale sa ty gdzies na pewno. Potem zjeżdzamy w dół i dalej w głąb wyspy ... aż tu nagle SĄ, SĄ! i wtedy zjezdzamy zdrogi, wpadamy w poslizg.

.. ale gosia skreca i stajemy. Żyjemy, nic sie nie stało. Na szęście nikogo nie było na drugim pasie. dalej ja prowadzę. Jedziemy i spotykamy większą grupkę bizonów. Kamery ida w ruch i się zaczyna! Są sliczne, cudowne, wspaniałe, jak one w ogóle dają radę tu przezyć, to chyba jakiś cud! Potem jedziemy na plac kempingowy - jemy obiad, gadamy głupoty robimy jeszcze głupsze zdjęcia i podziwiamy bizony. Jest przednia zabawa! Dobrze nam sie podróżuje wspólnie! Pakujemy zabawki i wracamy do Salt Lake City

Druga wucieczkę na wielkie Słone Jezioro odbywamy pare dni później - ale nie jedziemy oglądać bizonów ani wyspy ale samo jezioro, czyli to co powinno być wodą - jedziemy za miasto i wchodzimy 'do' jeziora - a tak naprawdę łazimy po słonym piachu i błocie.

Pełno tu martwych ptaków, i niestety smieci. Ale za to mamy piekny zachód słońca i grę świateł nad jeziorem!

In the morning we left our house and the aunt as well - it was too hot for her. And on the island it would be even worse, so off we go!
We were riding over one hour till we arrived at park entrance - the road was an artificial piece of land made for the road to get there. But we were going to head the island, and we still couldn't see the water! It's more like a mud, salty mud. This is the strangest lake i ever saw! The Great Salt Lake! Huge but not much water, hahaha!
We were climbing on a hill to have better view and we were still looking for bizons, they should have been somewhere .

.. in here. Then we decided to go further. We were comming here because of 'bullies' so there was nothing to stop us to find them... in a way! Suddenly we saw them! And... our car was at this moment off the road! Gosia turned sharply and we stoped... it was close! wuh! oh boy.... we were alife ... still alife, nothing has happened. We were lucky there was no one on the opposite lane at this moment! She was too scared because of this event to drive, so i got the keys and i drove us. Then we met them... there are so many of them here, and they're so splendide! So great, beautiful, and they don't care about us, just doing their stuff. We took our cams and started taking pics.  How do they manage to live here - it is almost desert, there is few green places, where there is something to eat for them, but it's HOT, and DRY, and they are so BIG.

It's a miracle of life!

We were driving forward to a camping place, where we had our lunch - rest a bit - and we could admire them - the bullies of course. We talked some stupid things, took even more stupid pics but we had such a FUN. We were good together! I wish i had always such good travel mates:D:D:D:D Then we rode back from the island to the mainland and southbound to Salt Lake City.

In few days we made another trip to the Great Salt Lake - but this time we weren't supposed to see bizons or the island - but the Lake - or what we were thinking was the lake - we rode out of town, went to the lake and walked into it - but there is salty sand and mud. Some birds bones and unfortunately so much rubbish.
Good for us - there was a beautiful sunset over the Lake, and the light was playing so nice! And this huge space!!!
