while hiking to angels landing we had the awesome pleasure to view a California condor in flight. I have only seen these birds in captivity before this and there are precious few in the wild.
he put on a little show for us and even came within about 3 feet of a fellow climber. For me he came about 10 feet over my head and luckily I had my camera out, not ready but out and got in a few quick shots before he landed in a tree nearby.
they have wing spans of over 10 feet and this one had a tag of 99 well guess it could be 66 but general consensus was that it was 99. a family there was so excited. they had recently drove 150 miles in search of one in an area (not sure where) that was suppose to have several and saw NONE.
