The reddish rock that dominates the cliffs and spires of the High Peaks is a form of volcanic rhyolite called breccia.
Condor or Vulture? California condors and common turkey vultures look similar from a distance. Both have distinctive bald red heads, both soar on thermals, and both inhabit the same territory. Here are some clues to tell them apart: California condors are larger, with a 10-foot wingspan. Turkey vultures have a 61⁄2-foot wingspan. Condor wings have white feathers on the leading edge of the underside. Turkey vulture wings have white feathers on the trailing edge. Condor tail feathers are fan-shaped. Turkey vulture tail feathers are less-pronounced. Condors are rare and typically fly solo or in pairs. Turkey vultures are plentiful and often fly in flocks. Condors flap their wings far less frequently than turkey vultures.
