“frequently missed beauty”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

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.

“Wow amazing view and saw several California Condors”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

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.

“See Californian Condors”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

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.
