Saturday, I headed south on my own to do a solo hike from the rebuilt Paria movie set to Starlight Arch, east of Kanab Utah. I chose to climb up the east end of the plateau and return off the south side after visiting the arch.
Just before I crested the east end of the cliffs on the way up, an extremely large bird flew low overhead. It was close enough to make me duck involuntarily. It was either a condor or a pterodactyl. (I’ll go with condor.) It had a much longer wing span than even adult eagles. Very cool!
Starlight Arch turned out to be only a class C arch but it was nice country to explore. A fast approaching snow storm made me leave the area sooner than I had planned.
