Part of a day of hiking, swimming and picnics.
Nice getaway for sunset during a brief visit to SLC.
It has been extraordinarily warm this winter so I took the family to Antelope Island for a picnic. I did a quick run to the top of this peak. It's not much of a hike but the view is really great!
After spending the night camping by the beach on Antelope Island, I hiked up to Buffalo point with my daughter. She made it to the observation area on her own, and then I carried her up, down, and back to our campsite on my shoulders.
We saw bison on the way up, as well as some birds we didn't recognize (grouse, maybe?). The view from the summit is amazing.
10/30/2013 We stopped and hiked up Buffalo Point first upon entering on to Antelope Island. Very short, easy hike. Continued onto do Frary Peak, as well as Dooly Knob and Stringham Peak.
I love this place. Buffalo Point is our family hang out. Climbed it so many times from all directions, that I can't even count.Great place for kids too!
Hiked the Lakeside Trail and Buffalo Point on a cloudy and windy day.
Climbed the Scenic Route in February ---Cold, but no crowds or bugs!
