Antelope Island's annual bison round-up takes place in relative obscurity, on a stunning landscape from another geologic era, making this event a wonderful opportunity to view bison close-up.

Nearby Utah landmarks like Bryce National Park might get plenty of attention, but the trout-rich waters of this pristine lake offer an appeal all their own for avid anglers.
