When we took our second shuttle back from the end stop at Zion National Park, we actually had a drive who spoke to us and told us some interesting things about Zion. For example, she said that a pair of condors lived nearby the park. That afternoon, when we took the road to the Kolob Reservoir, which weaves its way above Zion National Park, I glanced over a waterfall and there they were! I grabbed my camera, which was safely stashed beneath my seat, and took as many photos as I could before they soared down beyond the waterfall. This area had many updrafts, which are perfect for the condors. If you click on the top photo, you can actually see the second one. We felt we were priviledged to see them and I am thankful that we did! SkyWatch Friday for June 18, 2010.
