In case you missed it, here is a short video of last year’s Bison Roundup at Antelope Island.
If you look close, you can see a few riders cracking whips in the air to make noise so the herd keeps moving.
It’s quite a sight to see and the sounds are unlike anything we hear around town …. hootin’ and hollerin’ and the sound of hundreds of hooves making their way across the island.
The Roundup takes place around the end of October. You can come out and watch, or even register to participate!
Whoa! Check this out! George at Utah Lake just took this photo. It’s so windy that he couldn’t keep the camera still…
… and look at how the wind is pushing the lake ice up onto the jetty. That’s got to be like 10 feet high!
Want to visit your state parks for free this summer?! Visit one of the 84 participating libraries statewide and check out a Utah State Parks Annual Pass. The annual pass waives the entrance fee for you and up to seven other people in your vehicle.
Discover dinosaurs, have a perfect picnic, spend a day at the
beach, hike a trail, become a Junior Ranger, explore the night sky,
view wildlife and much, much more.
Grab your library card, get the pass, and let the fun begin!

I often hear the lament – “I hate winter!”

“What is there to do in winter?” those winter haters might say. “Skiing?”
Well, yes. There is that. But if you’re not a skier then that’s not really an option for you is it?
So let’s talk about something we can do in winter that is affordable, fun, and provides so many opportunities to play and explore!
How about incorporating snowshoeing with building snow caves, playing in the snow, and hot Dutch oven soup? Here’s how it works. Get your Dutch oven or slow cooker or just a nice big pot. Throw some tasty ingredients together and let them simmer for a few hours while you get out and get going in the snow!
Grab some snowshoes; borrow some from a friend or rent a pair if you don’t have your own. Then find a familiar trail, or join in with a guided snowshoe hike at your favorite state park. While… Read the rest
I love camping at Snow Canyon! You’ve got to try it.
It’s so beautiful here with the red rocks, the lava rocks, the green vegetation, and the blue sky.
Keep your eyes peeled for the desert tortoise … sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it?
See you around the campground!
