Antelope Island State Park, Utah

After spending several days at Bryce Canyon National Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park I decided it was time to travel to Antelope Island State Park here Utah. I wanted to visit Antelope Island because of two great photographers I had met online. I started following Mia McPherson on Twitter and was very impressed with her photography. Through her I also met Ron Dudley. They photograph mostly birds and one of the main areas that they visit is Antelope Island State Park.

I had been in contact with Mia and Ron throughout my journey through Utah and they were giving me some great advise on what to see and where to stay. I was ready to meet them and plus I was ready to photograph some wildlife.

If you want to see some great wildlife photos then you need to visit Mia and Ron’s site:

Antelope Island State Park, the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. View a free-roaming herd of 500 bison, and pronghorn and bighorn sheep that share the rangelands. Hike, mountain bike or horseback ride along backcountry trails for spectacular views of Great Salt Lake and island scenery.

I figured the first thing to photograph at Antelope Island should be the Pronghorn

    Beautiful pronghorn shots, Steve. It was wonderful to meet you on the island. I just wish the weather had been better while you were here.

    I loved the Pronghorn picture in the Antelope Island Section. I didn’t find it in the gallery though. I would like to know about print ordering and prices. Are there any other prints of them available. The head and neck shot was the one that I liked

    Steve, I wish that the weather had been better for your visit but it was terrific to finally meet you face to face.

    Wonderful Pronghorn images, I really enjoy the portrait! The Pronghorn have just begun having their fawns here!

    It was great meeting you also Mia. I have never seen Pronghorn Fawns so that would have been cool. I will have to make another trip and maybe I will get better weather.
