Great capture Gil, love it and the series! I'd be holding my breath too every time I saw one on the edge or jumping, sure wouldn't want to see one fall. Congrats on your new AC!

I've only traveled through New Mexico on the way to Arizona to see my brother. It is a beautiful place, and will certainly try to spend more time there next time! Thank you for sharing the beauty :)

Thank you very much Jen. Come out here, we see them all the time. Sometimes across the Gorge, sometimes right within a few feet. They are very amazing to watch when they jump around those cliffs or boulders.

Thank you very much Kathy & BriarCraft for your great comments.
I have not heard of one falling & getting hurt, but I'm sure it does happen, hopefully not. I can't help but hold my breath & worry everytime I see one doing this kind of acrobatics.
