Somewhere along the way, Sharon spotted a large bird on the cliff near the road. We pulled over and watched through the binoculars but it was too far for a decent picture. We decided it was an immature Golden Eagle.
Even dawdling along and pulling out for traffic to pass, we soon arrived at the new joint BLM/NPS Visitorís Center. On our last trip it was under construction and the trailer that was the temporary VC was closed for the night. We pulled in to check it out and who should be there but our Minnesota friends from the campground. They were just leaving the VC and had even watched the movie in the theater. I guess we were taking our time.
