The campsites on the island were a welcome sight when we pulled up and we quickly set up our tent and hopped in. Minutes after our heads hit our pillows we jumped at a thunderous sound beating past our tent walls!! People from the surrounding campsites were yelling to one another to look at what was going on! It turned out that there are quite a lot of Bison on this island, and this particular herd had decided that they needed a change of scenery! This sent them running, not walking, just feet next to our tent. They almost had some Motsenbocker Mush on their Bison toes!
Thankfully, we lived through the Bison stampede and went into Salt Lake City for some exploring today. It was a beautiful and warm day and we enjoyed walking around. We took a look at the Mormon Temple and though we could not go in, we enjoyed what there was to see from the outside. Then we popped our heads into the Tabernacle and were just in time to hear a woman practicing the organ. Lovely!
|The prettiest mall ever! It was minutes after entering before I realized we were indoors!|

|Bison seem to love making us wait for them as they shuffle across roads. Very annoying!|
