It looks like he's found a nice ledge to relax on, Joe! Great laid back pose - he looks sooooo relaxed. Lovely image.

Almost unseen! I walked up to the edge of the gorge and surveyed the far side, the side down below me and all around and saw nothing, even though they are often around this place. I went to locate my lens cap and returned to the same spot and looked right by my side. At first I saw this guy and soon saw the other that I posted this morning. They were laying in the shade on a warm day and staying motionless. I almost missed them.
Thanks, all, for your comments.

Joe
