Antelope Island is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake (northwest of Salt Lake City, Utah).  It is famous for its natural beauty.  Visitors can expect to see incredible vistas of lake and sky, along with abundant wildlife and seasonal wildflowers.  We especially enjoyed seeing the pronghorn antelope and bison.  Over 5 million migratory birds (250 species total) depend on the lake, making it one of the most important bird conservation areas in North America (http://www.fogsl.org/).  Info on visiting the Great Salt Lake is at:  http://www.visitthegreatsaltlake.com/
