Geocache Description:

Easy cache to get to. Great information to read.

While easting dinner at the restaraunt on the mesa we started talkingwith two very lovely and nice women. We were explaining this crazy sport of ours, geocaching, and they thought it was interesting. They then told us about what they do - they work for the Peregrine Fund and work with California Condors and release them back into the wild. They told us of a great location to go where there was an information kiosk and you could see the birds (kinda) from there as well.

Drive to the coordinates - very easy to find. Read the kiosks and e-mail us with your answers to the following questions:

The Peregrine Fund is trying to change the status of the California Condors to "Threatened".

1) How many individual birds must there be in each group?
2) How many breeding pairs must there be in each group?

Please do not post answers in your log - even if encrypted.

To see the birds, look towards the cliffs and up around the area that is "white-washed". The best time of year to see birds is fall/winter as the birds won't fly too far away then. We saw 3 of them on our visit to this site.
