Condors of Big Sur...

I didn't want to let too much time slip by without mentioning that we saw Bonnie "Prince" Billy at the Henry Miller Library last week. The show was great. Equally great was driving down the Pacific Coast Highway and encountering 16, yes SIXTEEN, massive condors sitting at the edge of the road, so close you could touch them. Why were there sixteen condors sitting on the side of the road? I don't speak condor, but I would guess it had something to do with the large wildfire that was burning in the hills next to the PCH. Remarkable animals. Ugly as scrotum. Majestic as the area they inhabit.
