... Just after Nepenthe we pulled into one of the little parking areas as we had seen a large bird. It was a pair of Condors just playing with the updrafts in the air. They were just magnificent to watch and such a privilege. At one time there were only 22 birds left the Americans have done a great conservation rescue with these fine creatures.
