Uncharted Visits Antelope Island

Yes, after a brief winter hiatus as we tweaked a few things, celebrated Christmas and generally got hit on the head so we forgot where we were going, Uncharted is again in the updating game. This week, read Explorer Fishstyx's adventures on Antelope Island, that mysterious blot of mountains that rise majestically out of the salty brine of Utah's Great Salt Lake. This is a place I've always wanted to visit and a place my wife, a native Utahn, has never been to. The closest she's been was when she was a child playing in the waters of Willard Bay. She also dipped a hard sugar cookie in the waters of the bay to soften it up a bit. That story is so fascinating in its grossness that I reeat it as often as narrative will permit. Yuck. So if we ever go to Antelope Island -- and Fishstyx has inspired me to do so, probably this summer -- we're taking the family. We'll explore the island, rustle up some antelope and bison. And a batch of really hard sugar cookies.
