"Surprise meeting with a Condor (Mount Zion Park)" United States of America Travelogue by MichaelFalk1969
United States of America Travel Guide: 301,661 reviews and 720,054 photos
While contemplating if I should go all to the top of Angel`s Landing trail (it is not for people afraid of heights, unfortunately I am afraid of heights), out of nowhere a Californian Condor appeared and circled several rounds in clear view.
Maybe he/she just saw a potential snack in me once I tumble off the mountain. I didn`t.
On my second day in Mount Zion Park - during a hike to Observation Point - I saw again two Condors, this time a little further away. It might well be it was the same one I spotted the day before.
I never expected to see a (Californian) Condor outside of a zoo, there are only about 180 living in the wild, distributed over Baja California, California, Grand Canyon and the Utah mountains. Lucky me.
