4-10-14: I walked up to the sanctuary cave and witnessed a Peregrine Falcon returning to her nesting site (heard little ones too), which is located on top of the cave, far right. It is extremely close to the routes on the far right, so I am SUGGESTING A VOLUNTARY CLOSURE. Let's help to make sure these wonderful creatures survive their infancy and give'em their space :)
