Natural Bridges National Monument, Nov. 9, 2009

Since  we had seen so many arches in Arches NP we wanted to see some natural bridges and no better place than Natural Bridges National Monument.  They are similar, but different.

A natural bridge is formed through erosion by water flowing in the stream bed of the canyon.  An arch is formed differently, if you want to read how they are formed, check it out here.

We hiked down to see Sipapu Bridge and ate our lunch in the shadows of the arch. 


The trail down and back up did have some ladders and rails.


Then onto Owachomo Bridge.  The hike down was not too bad and what an awesome view…this bridge is huge, see Bob at the bottom taking a photo.

031 030  Tomorrow  (Nov 10th) we are heading south to New Mexico.  We have been in Utah for over a month.  Utah has so much to see and October has been a great month to see its sights.
