Marty’s photo of the day #4186: Salt Lake City, Utah is a seven-hour drive from where Deb and I live in Montana, so we occasionally drive there for concerts at the USANA Amphitheater. Once there, we also visit Antelope Island. When we were there earlier this year, to see Evanescence, much of the Great Salt […]

Frankenfurter, is that you?
Marty’s photo of the day #4109: No, this isn’t a spaceship from the planet Krichardia, or the giant lips of Dr. Frankenfurter, returning to sing one more time. Instead, it’s a sunset as seen from Antelope Island in Utah. Distant mountains, hidden by smoke, create the optical illusion.
A splash of yellow
Marty’s photo of the day #4106: A splash of yellow, after hiking to the southern tip of Antelope Island.
Pronghorns and antelopes
Marty’s photo of the day #4105: Pronghorns, bison, and coyotes were animals Deb and I saw in both parts of our split American Prairie Reserve (Montana) and Antelope Island (Utah) vacation last month. Of course, the animal in today’s photo, correctly called a pronghorn in Montana, would commonly be called an antelope on Antelope Island. […]
Birds vs. Speedboats
Marty’s photo of the day #4098: From where Deb and I live, in Montana, one of the closest major concert venues is the USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City. So we’ve found it fun to take three days and mix rock and roll with nature. Six years ago, the concert was Joan Jett, and earlier […]
The sad state of the Great Salt Lake
Marty’s photo of the day #4097: Today I’m going to rip Republicans a new one. Deb and I have visited Antelope Island, located a little outside of Salt Lake City, twice. Both visits were in conjunction with concerts. The first was in late August 2016, as an add-on adventure after seeing Joan Jett; the second […]
Plateau side-blotched lizard
Marty’s photo of the day #4095: I photographed this plateau side-blotched lizard earlier this month on Antelope Island, in Utah.
Antelope Island bison
Marty’s photo of the day #4091: Between 500 and 700 bison live on Antelope Island (located in the Great Salt Lake of Utah). Two weeks ago, Deb and I hiked toward the far end of the island, passing by a herd with a huge bull. Then, as we approach the island’s tip, we came across […]
Evanescence with 25,000 of my closest friends
Marty’s photo of the day #4088: During the first part of September, Deb and I enjoyed an unusual split vacation that included six days in the American Prairie Reserve of central Montana, two days at home, and then three days in Utah that included exploring the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area and Antelope Island. Those […]
Antelope Island sunset
Marty’s photo of the day #4084: I shot this sunset photo last Saturday, while standing on Antelope Island, overlooking the Great Salt Lake. If you look closely, you will see what appears to be a jagged piece cut out of the bottom of the sun. That’s the top of a mountain, obscured by smoke from […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4082: Our vacation is over . . . sigh. First, Deb (wife), Nellie (dog), and I spent six days in the American Prairie Reserve of central Montana. There we stayed in a remote yurt, with no running water, no phone, no internet, and limited solar power. It was awesome! Then […]
Amazing Acrobat Coyotes
Marty’s photo of the day #3788: This is one of the Amazing Acrobat Coyotes of Antelope Island, performing the difficult but crowd-pleasing “one paw stand with bison hide blindfold.” (Photographed on Antelope Island in Utah)
Marty’s photo of the day #3053: American avocets along the shore of Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake.
Sunset on the Great Salt Lake
Marty’s photo of the day #3041: I haven’t posted a sunset photo in a long time, so here’s one I took from Antelope Island, overlooking the Great Salt Lake.
Bringing home dinner
Marty’s photo of the day #2803: This is kind of a strange photo until you know what you’re looking at. It’s a coyote with her kill, crossing a road on Antelope Island, in Utah.
Black-necked stilt and American avocet
Marty’s photo of the day #2361: This is a black-necked stilt and an American avocet, photographed at Antelope Island, in Utah. I made this photograph two summers ago, and now I have the urge to return to Antelope Island. It really is a wonderful place.
