Opening mile, looking back.
Up and over an early rise with the Wasatch mountains in the distance.
Heading towards the high points of Antelope Island.
Bison below, with the road that parallels our future path along the lake.
Trees! There are trees!
Up a stiff climb to the Elephant Head AS. A lone tree offers a landmark.
Elephant Head AS. Most runners did the out and back to the left. I opted for the large loop first.
Great view of the lake to the west.
Descending almost to the lake level first.
Amazing rock formations along the path.
Switchbacks take us back up slowly.
Lots of lizards in the early spring dashing underfoot.
The most prolific flower near bloom, biscuitroot.
