Picturing the lonely beauty of Antelope Island
First Published Jan 04 2012 08:23 am • Last Updated Jan 04 2012 08:23 am

One of the outdoor gems of Utah is Antelope Island, that stands in the hazy distance in the Great Salt Lake. It’s probably the best place to experience the lonely grandeur of the lake.

Though the rocky island is visible from just about anywhere on the Wasatch Front, it’s amazing how few residents have ever been across the causeway from Syracuse in Davis County.

Anytime this month is a particularly good time to visit because in addition to the famed 600 buffalo, chukar partridges, coyotes, bobcats and raptors, the visitor center is exhibiting the photography of Deanna Reeves.

Reeves is the author of Portrait of Antelope Island, Utah State Park, which documents the largest island in the Great Salt Lake.

To get to Antelope Island, take the second Layton I-15 exit, Exit 332, (helpfully marked with a brown Antelope Island sign). Then drive west 7 miles on Antelope Drive through hideous strip malls, big boxes, golf-course developments and other blight to emerge in the wide open of the Great Basin.

It’ll cost you $9 per car to cross the seven-mile causeway.($3 if you bike.) If you get lost, call 801-773-2941 or 801-725-9263.
