Angels Landing Fun in the Sun

Had a wonderful day shooting pictures up on Angel's Landing yesterday. Met lot of really cool folks from all over the world. One of the day's highlights was a pair of Condors riding the thermals just off of the saddle. It is so inspiring to see the recovery of these magnificent birds. It brought back memories of the early 80's when I helped the Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Group bring back the Peregrine falcons off the endangered species list by swapping eggs from the wild hatch sites, replacing them with fake ones, then after the group hatched the chicks, replacing them in the nests.

Wish I had brought one of my bigger lenses, but there's always another day!
