Cloudy skies followed us off the plateau and back. A fellow employee and I went to the public California Condor release on the third Saturday of September at Vermilion Cliffs. Had to leave the North Rim early under dark gray onimous skies.
The Condor release occurred at 11am and all three juveniles came out of the enclosure within 10 minutes. Those tiny specks are condors. Good thing the sky was gray or they would have been impossible to see. Remember they have a 9 1/2 foot wingspan.
But rather than head right back home we decided to drive to the Navajo Bridge further east and maybe see more condors as they tend to roost under the bridge. The rain followed us past Vermilion Cliffs.
We continued to Lee’s Ferry under these ominous skies.
Which doesn’t make any difference to the folks launching on the Colorado for their adventures rafting the river.
