Nice set of GC photos. ?Quite a difference from those I took back in July, 
when it was quite a bit hotter, and bright sunshine. ?The over low head 
clouds really give it a mysterious look and also bring out the colors more, 
and the snow gives some interesting contrast. ?All you needed was a couple 
of shots with the California Condors in them.?
