Sunset at the beach.. Utah style!

For a while now we (and when I say we I mean mostly me - Doug is just a good sport and goes along with it) have wanted to drive out to Antelope Island for some photos of the Great Salt Lake at sunset. So one Friday night a few weeks ago we arranged for Tyson to stay with Grandma and headed north to the island. My only trip to the Great Salt Lake was many years ago as a child when I was dragged there and forced to swim in it - a traumatic story for another blog post. In any case, I was excited.

Mother Nature did not disappoint me. We were able to witness a beautiful sunset.

There's something strangely romantic about seeing two lover's shadows on the beach.
I couldn't resist capturing the photo.

Believe it or not, these are Buffalo prints. We actually saw a couple lounging while we were driving. I think the linear line of prints was awesome.


Clearly we're not the best at taking self-portraits.
We try again.

Much better. These are the best date nights.

The picture speaks for itself. Awesome.

Love the photos. I think I might have to copy cat your date night.

Great idea! I have lived in the SLC area my whole life but had never been to Antelope Island until last summer when I literally DRAGGED my husband and kids out there. I thought it was pretty cool. Kids whined but were fine once we got to the farm. It's an interesting place for sure.
