15 miles on the White Rock Trail loop at Antelope Island. Lots of quiet solitude.

I looked up Antelope Island on the Internet. It says it is an island in the Salt Lake with a large herd of buffalo. Did you get chased by or did you chase any buffalo on your run? (just kidding)

Actually, I did come across two buffalo right in the middle of the trail I was running on. I didn't want to challenge them so I had to wait about 5 minutes for them to move. One was rolling around on the ground scratching its back.

I think if I met a buffalo in the middle of the trail I wouldn't have waited. I probably would have turned around and ran as fast as I could in the opposite direction.
