Frary Peak

Antelope State Park 070We left Salt Lake City on Tuesday.  On Monday, we went back to Antelope Island State Park to hike Frary Peak – the highest point on the Island that sits in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. 

The hike was pretty nice – 8 miles and 2,000+ feet in elevation change.  The trail wasn’t in the greatest shape but it was a beautiful day and the views were fantastic. 

We took the side trail to Dooly Knob.  As we came over the top, this was what we saw:

We counted over 150 bison moving towards the coast.  Some of them were galloping along.  It was a pretty cool scene.

We missed the trail to the Peak at first – it actually went down the hillside to start and we were looking up!  The last quarter-mile was a pretty steep climb but the hard part was coming back down. 

We hung out for awhile enjoying the 360 degree view with the Great Salt Lake on every side.
