What we saw from our drive along 89A was spectacular. I did not realize how big this place is until we stopped at the overlook that showed the map. It sounds like the best way to see this area is a tour deep into the park if you have a day or more to spend. Otherwise just enjoy the views along 89A.

Even if you just drive along 89 or 89A the sight and view along this unforgettable stretch of highway on a wide open plateau are stunning. Be sure to stop at Lee's Ferry and Cliff Dwellers. If you have more time, explore along the dirt roads or hike into the rugged area. If you do be sure to carry enough water. This is a simply spectacular area.

Vermillon Cliffs is big area located in both Arizona and Utah. You can enjoy a view, but real beauty is to explore it deeper. Be prepared to drive by unpaved bumpy roads for quite a while.

We spent about 3 hrs at the Condor Viewing area of Vermillion Cliffs. I had a high power spotting scope and a very large telephoto lens. We watched a adolecant condor and two adults for about an hour. It was incredible to be able to watch this bird which is on the verge of extinction. There are only about 400 of them in the world. This is a very hard place to find. But well worth the effort. You need high power binoculars or a spotting scope to enjoy this one. They are a must.

Get up close by taking a dirt road which is on the left about 15 miles East of Jacob Lake. There is a viewing point below the cliffs where the Californian Condor project is based. We saw two birds sitting high on the cliff tops, but you may be lucky and see this rare bird in flight on its 9ft wing span.
