What can compare to the splendor and vastness of The Grand Canyon?

It is simply amazing to stand at the edge of The Grand Canyon and watch California Condors fly over head, with their up to 109" wing-spans, and perch themselves on the cliffs near by.  What a treat!  We were at the first lookout point off Hwy 64 as you first enter the park. You can only imagine how disappointed I was when I realized that my camera was set to the wrong settings as I shot what I thought was a plethora of Condor pictures. I was so excited that I failed to check my camera settings. That will not happen again! I did catch some other birds while there and some Elk as we drove through the Kaibab National Forest on the way to the canyon.
