First things first, have you entered to win our Epic RV Staycation Giveaway with Access RV? We've been planning this RV trip for months and we could NOT WAIT to share it with you! Our first place we stopped is WAYYYYYYYY out there, like, way out there! Have you heard of the Sun Tunnels in the Great Basin Desert? They are LITERALLY out in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, Google Maps directions take you RIGHT to the location. We were a little worried about the dirt road with our RV, but nothing an RV couldn't handle. The drive is LONG
On our way out to Antelope Island State Park, we saw the strangest thing... Angry Birds and Crazy Pigs! We've actually driven past these for years and finally stopped. The kids thought they were hilarious!
We're super excited to share Davis County with you! We've partnered up with Play in Davis to giveaway this epic Staycation, so be sure to enter here. We're going to start things off with Utah's most iconic thing; The Great Salt Lake! It's actually been a while since the Salt Project has visited the Great Salt Lake in the summer. Because that summer Utah heat is brutal. Sometimes those biting gnats are so awful, but lucky for us, they apparently are gone for now! (We totally checked before visiting.) First things first, FOOD. We did take-out from The Bird in
We're continuing with Rhiannon's Antelope Island Hike post. See Buffalo Point Hike here. I didn’t really plan to do this hike at first, but while driving I saw a sign that said “Guided Hiking tour at 1pm” it was 12:55 when I saw the sign and I thought ‘WHY NOT?’ I wanted to take advantage of the 10$ entrance fee! My rule of thumb when hiking with kids is to not be afraid to try it, because you can always bail if the trail is too intense or my kids are too crazy. I was also really interested in the
Antelope island is SO COOL. I love that there are other posts of Antelope Island on the Salt Project. Because really, if you live in northern Utah and you haven't been, you should. That's it. No excuses. It's awesome, and I feel like it's SOOOOO UTAH. This is perfect for Spring. I think that Antelope Island is SO UNIQUE. I love the Bison, I love that it is in the Great Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake is cool enough as it is, I mean when you look at a map of the US you always know where home is
Think of one place in Utah where people come from all over the world to visit. Zion National Park? Temple Square? Arches National Park? If you guessed any of these glorious places, you'd be right, but you may be surprised to know that the Spiral Jetty fits this description, too. (See our post on Utah.com) Created in 1970 by renowned artist/sculptor Robert Smithson, the Spiral Jetty forms a massive coil of black basalt rocks jutting from the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake. People from all over the world (especially those who know a bit about the art world)

Brittney is back! She's writing all about Spiral Jetty. (See our post on Utah.com) It's definitely one of my favorite Utah adventure destinations. Here's a little background info for you. In 1970, Robert Smithson used over six thousand tons of black basalt rocks to form a coil 1,500 feet long that winds from the northeastern shoreline of the Great Salt Lake and into the water. He name his work "Spiral Jetty". Its pretty awesome. We made the mistake of trying to tack this trip onto the end of an already adventure filled day, and our kids just didn't make it
