Stansbury Island

Yesterday we made a trip out to Stansbury Island in the Salt Lake. Since the water in the Salt Lake has drastically lowered, it is no longer an island, and you can drive out onto it. We hiked the mountain biking trail, which snakes along what used to be the shoreline. It is much less crowded than Antelope Island (we were the only people on the trail), and it was interesting to see the ancient landscape and imagine what it would have looked like surrounded by water.  And speaking of water, it was storming all around us, but we only got caught in a few sprinkles. Stansbury Island
