U is for Utah

When we first visited Utah, it seemed as though every which way we turned we found another national park. Heck, I had never even heard of Canyonlands National Park, and suddenly there we were, completely taken in by its beauty. We've returned a few times, once to visit Antelope Island on Great Salt Lake. Virtually nothing lives in that lake, we were told. It's much too saline for fish. The only life seems to be tiny shrimp that are noticeable for the odor of their tiny little carcasses and the tiny bugs they attract.

But wait, don't let that stop you. A causeway connects the mainland to the island, where antelope and buffalo abound. If you ever have the chance to visit Utah, for goodness' sake do it.
