PARK WELCOMES 2 MILLIONTH VISITOR

Rangers pulled over John Tsai's car during the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, but it wasn't for a traffic violation. Tsai and his wife, Alice, were the 2 millionth visitors to Utah's Canyonlands National Park.

The Tsais were touring the park's Island in the Sky area when they were stopped and taken to the park's headquarters, spokesman Tom Cox said Tuesday.They received the key to the city of Moab and numerous gifts, including a river running trip, two free nights in area motels and free meals at Moab restaurants, said Cox.

Tsai, who works for a Washington, D.C., management consulting firm, said he and his wife, a certified public accountant, have visited Canyonlands "several times. There's no place like it on Earth. We'll be back next year."
