A fun week...

I had a real treat his week, My cousin Ed, and family, who live in Indiana, came to visit. They are taking a big western US road trip and we are conveniently located between the Badlands of south Dakota and San Fransisco. I took a day off from work so we could take a whirlwind tour of beautiful Northern Utah. First stop, Antelope Island State Park. Antelope Island is in the middle of the Great Salt lake, connected to the mainland by a seven mile causeway. I love going out to the island, especially to the high overlooks. The views to the lake surrounded by the snowcapped Oquirrh and Wasatch mountains is positively spectacular!!!
Besides enjoying the view from Buffalo point we went to marina so Ivy and Mae could dip their feet in the Great Salt Lake... and see the brine shrimp, or as you may know them, Sea Monkeys!!! The water at the marina was teaming with sea monkeys. It's funny how as a kid sea monkeys are such an exciting thing, but right here at the lake
they are so common place!
