Antelope Island Makes List of Most Epic Places

Huffington Post has an interesting article listing what the writer considers to be the "most epic places on earth." Grand Canyon makes the list, of course. Surprisingly, so does Utah's Antelope Island. Here's the title and then the list:

...After pouring through the tips and experiences from the minube travel community, we're happy to present this list of the 17 most amazingly EPIC places on Earth.
  • Playa de las Catedrales, Spain
  • Scottish Highlands, Scotland
  • Namib-Naukluft Park, Namibia
  • Erta Ale, Ethiopia
  • Antelope Island, USA
Antelope Island, the largest in Utah's Great Salt Lake, is one of the most spectacular areas of the American West. If the basin's surreal and swirling colors aren't enough, the fact that this state park is full of wild bison, antelope, and coyotes should help get you into the frontier spirit.
  • Okavango Delta, Botswana
  • Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
  • Yalta, Ukraine
  • Sol de Mañana, Bolivia
  • Namtso, China
  • The Grand Canyon, USA
  • Ijen, Indonesia
  • Iceland
  • Breithorn, Switzerland
  • Bransfield Strait, Antarctica
  • Geiranger Fjord, Norway
  • Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina
"Best of" lists are always subjective. Antelope Island, in my opinion, is a great spot, scenic, with fun opportunities to hike, bike, camp, boat, see wildlife and enjoy other activities. Bust among the most epic spots on earth? I'd rank it among the 20 best spots in Utah.

I place a high value on "uniqueness." Some of our attractions are totally unique - nothing else like them on earth. Among those, I'd put these spots on my totally epic list:
