Thanks Rick! These apes have learned to ride up and down the Rock on the the 'tourist vans'. They are quite selective on the vehicles they use. Happy you enjoyed the photo! #80491

Hi Duane and Dottie - love your sense of humour! I'm pretty sure HE was just hanging on for dear life as we were moving -btw the driver was on the other side - he may have been 'mooning' us the passengers! Thanks for the comments - I've had a good laugh too! #80657
