Antelope Island

A lot of my time last week was spent on Antelope Island, in the Great Salt Lake. At first I was excited to go setup my research at this new on-site location. I'd never heard of the place but thought it sounded fascinating and like the perfect adventure to conclude my undergrad research experience. In looking up some info about the place I found this breathtaking picture

But that was not quite the view I found! Instead, this is what I stared at for 12 hours on Thursday, and then a few more Friday morning. Add to this picture a small trailer, an uncooperative instrument, a wind that would bring a sewer smell, and our lovely friends the mosquitos, & you can glimpse my days.

Friday afternoon slightly made up for the return trip from Provo. We went to Roy, UT and stopped at the Burger Bar (previously featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives). FUN! Seriously, a LOT of FUN. I'm glad I got to visit this Utah novelty before adios-ing it outta here!

Moral of the story, if you're going to do some grunge work, make sure you have good company, and good food! Those 2 in combo can turn any potentially horrific experience into some of your favorite memories!
