    Exploring Antelope Island

    August 25, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    Drove around Antelope Island looking for wildlife. Found some bison, one antelope and lots of lizards. The lizards were on the hike to the highest peak on the island, Frary Peak, at 6,596ft. With no coverage and heat inching up in the mid 90's, only Angus saw the summit. The Visitor Center here is well done. A great visit!

    Passed through Syracuse, UT on our way out!

    Antelope Island State Park, Utah

    August 24, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 81 °F

    Next stop on the tour is a little island located just northeast of Salt Lake City called Antelope Island State Park. There are antelope on the island, but the island is more well known for their herd of 500-700 bison! We drove across the seven mile causeway to get into the park and were not disappointed seeing about 5. We'll be sure to get pictures tomorrow.

    Love our unique campsite once again. Located close to the beach with hares and cool beetles running around nearby. Lots of fun sand to play with and areas to explore. Thank you for the recommendation, Philip Bartlett!

    Hidden Beach, Lake Tahoe

    August 23, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    Headed out in Kevin's boat to Hidden Beach. Water makes it seem like you are in the Caribbean, until you get in!

    Finished the day with a hike to a viewpoint of the lake from Kevin's house. Last picture is of Kevin's house so you can see how they are all built up the mountain here.

    A great day in Lake Tahoe!

    Burnt Cedar Beach, Incline Village, NV

    August 22, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    Spent the day at the local beach to help celebrate Mandy's 5th birthday (ok, so we party crashed!) where they have lake access in a rocky area because the lake is 6 feet below normal. Great for finding crayfish! There was also a playground, pool with slide and a baby pool. Awesome area!

    Finished the day with an amazing dinner at Lupita's Mexican restaurant where we had REAL mexican food. The guacamole was divino. Gordie got El Presidente fish tacos and Maddie the tacos carnitas, Sarah got Lupita's Burrito with a chile relleno inside and Angus went for the supreme burrito. Only problem was that hardly anyone could finish because Kevin had made pulled pork sandwiches and enormous ribs in his smoker for the birthday party. Hmmm, thinking we need a smoker! ¡Muy sabroso y fantástico!

    Twolome Grove, Yosemite Nat'l Park

    August 21, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    We headed to the western side of the park to check out the giant sequoia trees down in Twolome Grove. As we walked down a mile we remarked that all the trees were big, but not that big. Then we saw our first tree, wow!Read more
