antelope island winter family hike and other activities - January 29, 2023

Bundle up and Come out for all or part of the day. Winter is a great time to explore Antelope Island. Current weather forecast for Antelope Island on Sunday says "A slight chance of snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 34" so it should be a great day on the Island! There are hiking options for everyone in the family. The organizers will have one of the Bridger Bay campsites near the amphitheater where we'll have a winter campfire going (we don't know which one yet, but the campground is a loop and we'll have a small WMC sign posted, so you can't miss us). From there, the group will set out for a relaxed pace stroll along the northern part of the island, and more adventurous folks can head out for a Frary Peak ski/snowshoe summit. Dogs ok but must be on a leash. We can return to camp by 1:30 or so for lunch (some of us will be doing foil pouches in the campfire!), then drive over to the eastern part of the island and see if we can find the porcupines. For more fun, some can stop by the visitor center for a variety of displays and a video, then return to the campsite for sunset. Dress in layers, bring food for hike snacks and campfire lunch, and bring a camp chair.
