hike antelope island backcountry trails, bighorn update, and optional car camp - February 29, 2020

Let's explore the western backcountry trails of the island. The group will head out the Bone Road Trail, connecting to the Split Rock Trail, returning by way of a portion of the White Rock Loop, with an option to check out the Elephant Head spur. There will be minimal elevation gain, but a lot of distance. After the hike, the group can stop by the Visitor Center and get an update on the big horn sheep. The prior herd contracted a terrible disease and had to be eliminated, and the new herd is scheduled to be re-introduced this month. I'll secure a group campsite near the trail head, so you can stay a while for hobo dinners, or come prepared to camp for the night.
