    Made it way up there and back to within a hundred feet of easy gravel and then this. You can tell by that line it wasn't going to end well.

    I got back to camp early, took a break and then around sunset a short hike.

    Nice light this time of day/year.

    It gets dark quick. I built a fire and had dinner before it got dark, but was still crawling into my sleeping bag around 8.

    Out of the sleeping bag around 7 and no direct sunlight until 8:30ish. I stoked the fire, had some coffee and oatmeal, made another turkey sandwich and loaded the camp gear while it was warming.
    Up Beef Basin today.

    I was going to try to come into Canyonlands from the south, but just past the 'Sand Canyon' sign I ran into snow. Not enough to ski, but enough that I didn't feel like going up as I would need to come back down.

    Picked a nice spot for lunch on the way back down..
