The Great Salt Lake

Today was a long driving day - up at 5:30 and on the road by 7:30.  We did make one fun stop though...  Salt Lake.  Rebecca and I planned to jump in and float like corks.  However, we didn't realize how shallow it is and how far out we might have to walk to be able to get enough water to float!  So we just waded out, then rinsed off and went to look for wildlife on the rest of Antelope Island.
This was as far under as she could get!

We found some island wildlife, along with some beautiful views.

We were hoping to see some ANTELOPE on Antelope Island...
But bison will be OK.
After our visit to the lake, we kept trucking along and made it to Little America WY by dinner time.  

Here's some info from their website: Named for Admiral Richard Byrd’s 1929 base camp in Antarctica, Little America has provided a similar haven to travelers since 1934. We pride ourselves on combining all the comforts of home with warm hospitality and high standards of quality.

Plus they have 50 cent ice cream cones.

We had a good dinner, and a swim in the outdoor pool which was about as warm as a bathtub. Now we're ready for bed and another long driving day tomorrow!
