One of the things we did while exploring Antelope Island was hike the very short Buffalo Point Trail. We were both tired from our earlier flight, so this short climb to the top of a ridge was perfect for our energy level. The top of the ridge is apparently a great place to catch the sun setting behind the mountains to the west of the Great Salt Lake. As we were walking back down to the car, we passed several couples heading up to enjoy the show.
We were too early for the sunset, but that was okay. We were entertained on the way up by the Chukar that I already wrote about, a rabbit that I have yet to write about, and this Rock Wren. The top of the ridge is a nice jumble of rocks and boulders, and I think we must have been disturbing this wren's perfect home. He would come out and silently watch us from some nearby rock. Whenever I noticed him, however, and made some effort to take his picture, he would hop or fly into cover, only to emerge on some other rock in a completely different direction.
