A sunny Sunday that’s not too hot. Perfect day to grab some food and drink, a pair of binoculars and a climbing rope, then head to Pinnacles National Monument.
Among the crags
On the steps
Searching for condors
Keeping fluid levels topped up
Traffic jam on the High Peaks Trail
A crowded summit
Finally … a condor! Yes, that little bump on the rock in the center of the photo (click through to view it as a slightly larger bump).
The descent of man … in this case, Larry
Condor watching from the meager shade of a gray pine (Pinus sabiniana)
