Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah and was founded by the Mormons (see: This is the place). On our excursions to the city from Antelope Island we explored the Mormon Temple and the State Capitol Building.
Pushing on towards Yellowstone we left Salt Lake City and Utah. The drive to Bear Lake and the Idaho border was through a canyon where the fall colours were in full swing. This was also bear territory, our lunch spot was beautiful but we didn't stray far from the car.
