Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam? And I’ll show you some fresh buffalo chips!
Visiting Utah’s Antelope Island State Park is the best way to view the Great Salt Lake, America’s Dead Sea. The largest Island on the Great Salt Lake is home to a roaming herd of over 500 bison.
Bison roam anywhere they want to, and they may find your car side-mirrors ideal for scratching where it itches. Explaining this damage on your car insurance claim may be difficult!
The Antelope Island’s name came from the Pronghorns that populate the island. They resemble the African antelope and apparently the North American cowboys didn’t want to call this place, Pronghorn Island.
Also, buffalo don’t roam anywhere in North America. The bison resembles the African Buffalo, but singing about “where the bison roams” just doesn’t sound right.
The island has many hiking and biking trails for them to enjoy. But for now, the camping, sandy beaches, and exploring the historical Garr Ranch with us and their parents are more fun for them.
The bison and Pronghorn Antelope have long been a part of the island’s history and this is a great way to see nature living a free roaming life.
