UNPAID VACATION DAY 3 — I've been to Canyonlands National Park more times than I can count, but I'd never taken the time to visit Aztec Butte, right on the main drag in the Island in the Sky District. The granary above is what greeted me at the end of my hike.

And the trail leading there...

I ended up at Natural Bridges National Monument, where the north faces of White Canyon were, of course, under many inches of snow and ice, precluding me from doing the eight-mile loop I'd planned to hike. Sunset there was nice, however.
