Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known” – Carl Sagan

Natural bridges look similar to arches but they are formed by water rather than erosion, and are much rarer. Natural Bridges National Monument is on Hyw 275 which is off Hwy 95 near Mexican Hat. It is isolated and gets far fewer visitors than a place like Arches NP, but it is well worth a visit. Here is the Visitor’s Guide. Natural Bridges National Monument has a nine mile loop drive which connects to trails to three natural bridges.

Sipapu Bridge:The longest of the three bridges at Natural bridges National Monument, it is reachedĀ  by a 1.2 mile round tripĀ  trail, fairly steep at the bottom.

Burkeville Covered Bridge, Massachusetts

When Built: 1870 (Rebuilt 1999)

Description: This is often called the oldest surviving bridge in North America which it certainly is not. Hyde Hall in New York dates from 1825, and there are many other bridges which are built before 1870 which survive. It has been rebuilt a number of times and is presently in excellent shape.

This is part of a series on Massachusetts’ Covered Bridges. You can find an index here.

Green River Lookout, Utah

Green River Lookout, Utah

This is the Green River Lookout in Canyonlands ((Rim) National Park in Utah at sunset. There is a road below that makes a circuit if you have a tough enough vehicle. You best be sure because it costs a couple of thousand dollars to be hauled out.

Capital Reef NP, Utah

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

I had planned to stop at Coral Reef NP as a waypoint, a convenient place to go between Arches NP and Bryce NP. It turned out to have a unique charm all its own, and a place I would look forward to spending time at again.
