Antelope Island is a great place to visit. It is often overlooked, and has cool wildlife, a nice museum, and some good hiking and camping with stunning views of the entire Salt Lake basin.

Only this year, because of all the water from the above-average snowpack this season, they’re about as bad as they have been in maybe 15 years.

Bug spray doesn’t seem to work on them, she said, but covering up does — especially your face.
