Legend At the beginning of time there were no Humans. Coyote got in a fight with Bear, bear decided to kill coyote so he tore him into chunks and flung them all over the world. The chunks turned into people who started nations, empires and tribes and that’s how there became humans
Comparing the old and new Water Transportation
Research on planes This is a view of the instrument panel of the "Huey" helicopter. As with most aircraft, there are a variety of instruments and gauges that allow the pilot to fly the helicopter properly, and to get where they need to go.
This is the Bell HH-1H, also known as "Huey." The HH-1H was primarily used for search and rescue of crash-casualties. The HH-1H was armed with two 7.62 mm machine guns and had a speed of 150 mph
This is the cargo bay inside the CH-3 helicopter. The CH- 3 is most commonly known by its nickname, "Jolly Green Giant." This helicopter was initiated into service in the late 1960's and was used for long-range search and rescue. As you can see, there’s a lot of space inside for troops and equipment.
One of the more odd-shaped cargo planes that you can see while visiting the museum is the Fairchild C-119G "Flying Boxcar." This airplane can easily be identified by its twin tail booms that allowed rear-loading access to the fuselage. As its name implies, this aircraft was used for cargo and transport.The airplane was also used to deliver up to forty-two paratroopers who could jump out the rear of the fuselage with no fear of hitting the tail surfaces. The "Flying Boxcar" also gets its name due to its fuselage shape and volume, which is 93% of the mass of a railroad box car.
This is the inside of the C-119G looking from the back of the cockpit towards the front of the plane. As you can see, there are a lot of windows that allowed the pilots a good view for flight and navigation
The Flying Boxcar is more than just a cargo and transport plane. The model G was later modified into a gunship for ground attack and to suppress anti-aircraft fire. The modified version was armed with four 7.62mm mini-guns, or two 20mm cannons. (The C-119G shown here does not include these)
These are water tests done in a few places, below it shows the phosphates, nitrates, dissolved oxygen, and pH balance
Antelope Island Antelope Island is the largest island in the Great Salt It is reached via a 7.2 m l s Activities include saltwater bathing, bird watching, camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, sunbathing, exploring historical sites, photography and viewing wildlife in its natural habitat. Watchable wildlife viewing opportunities abound with a herd of 600 bison, deer, coyotes, antelope, bighorn sheep, shorebirds, and waterfowl. Facilities include modern rest rooms, hot showers, picnic shelters, group pavilion, boat launching ramp, marina and visitor center.
By the 1930's all the antelope had disappeared from Antelope Island. Thanks to efforts of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the Division of Parks and Recreation, they were able to reintroduce twenty-four Pronghorn on the island in1993. By1995 the herd size had nearly doubled due to a successful fawning season. Antelope have excellent eye sight. They can see at long distances, but antelope are very curious. If you want to get close to one, lay low in a ditch or bush, take a rag and tie it to a pole and wave it. Antelope will come close to figure out what is moving. Sometime between 1841 and1846, trapper Osborn Russell explored Antelope Island. He reported visiting a Native American band, followers of Chief Wanship. They called the island "Pa-re-bi-na" meaning antelope breeding place. During their visit, John C. Fremont and Kit Carson observed several antelope on the island. Two of those antelope were harvested. In memory of the supply of food that the antelope had furnished, from that time forward, that island was known as Antelope Island.
Brine Flys The life of the Brine Fly begins as a minute egg that lives in the briny water. This egg passes through a larval stage, which feeds on the algae and bacteria that grows in the salty water. It will continue to grow into a floating pupal stage, and then it hatches. From that stage, the Brine Fly will become part of a horde of other Brine flies, and will fly over the water or nearby shores. Brine flies are considered true flies. They do not bite nor do they transmit diseases. The adult Brine Fly only lives three to four days.

Brine Shrimp Many people think that life cannot exist in the briny water of the Great Salt Lake. Yet contrary to everyone's belief, life exists. The Brine Shrimp, which are the lake's Biggestlife form, and dozens of species of bacteria protozoa and algae live in the lake. All these life forms play an important part in the lake's ecology.

UTAH JUNIPER (Juniperus ostseosperma Little) bigberry juniper, western juniper GENERAL DESCRIPTION Utah juniper is an evergreen tree that is usually a bush-type in appearance with rounded crown and a trunk that is many- forked or occasionally with a central dominant trunk. Mature trees average less that 30 feet high and are about 24 inches diameter. HABITAT AND DISTRIBUTION This tree is common on dry plains, plateaus and the lower elevations of the mountains of the state. Its elevation range usually is between 4,000 and 7,500 feet in our state. It is common at elevations below the Pinions, and its maximum elevation is below the upper limits of Rocky Mountain juniper.
The Utah Juniper is a small, long-lived tree found throughout the Great Basin. “Juniperus osteopermais” is the scientific name for Utah Juniper.
More info on the Juniper The Utah Juniper is located throughout the Great Basin. The singleleaf pinyon is usually found around the Utah Juniper. The Utah Juniper grows on shallow, corse, rocky soils throughout much of the Colorado Plateau. They grow best at mid-elevations from 6,557 to 7,869. The flowers on a Utah Juniper are green pistillate flowers that form strobili or "berries." The leaves on the juniper are scale-like. The bark is reddish-brown to gray-brown.
