A prospector discovered the Natural Bridges in 1883, and it became a National Monument in 1908.
There are 3 amazing natural bridges (arches are caused by erosion, frost, and seepage – bridges are formed by moving water such as a stream) within the Monument, as well as a number of ancient ruins.
Sipapu Bridge is the 2nd largest in the world, only Rainbow Bridge in Glen Canyon NRA is larger.
We only brought cell phones due to the length of the hike, so these photos are as good as it gets.
I look pretty small underneath this massive rock overhang at Natural Bridges.
A rock fell out of this massive hole in the canyon wall.
Utah’s natural bridges and arches are amazing!
Colette looks even smaller than normal against these sheer canyon walls.
Owachomo Bridge Selfie
Of course we have to have a selfie at Owachomo Bridge!
Big Bridge. Little Person.
A perspective view of Owachomo Bridge. At 106 feet high and 180 feet across, it’s no wonder that Colette is just a little speck. Owachomo has been wearing down over time and it’s suspected to have a fatal crack that will bring it down.
