Impressions of Natural Bridges

November 19, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I spent some time at Natural Bridges National Monument this month taking photographs with my friend Gabe of Gabriel Carlson Creations, and was impressed with the scenery, and the facilities. I hadn't been to the Bridges in probably 30 years, and was glad to see the improvements to the road and especially the campground.

There are three bridges, Sipapu, Kachina, and Owachomo. We visited Kachina and Owachomo(the easiest to hike to) as well as House on Fire Ruin in nearby Mule Canyon. The sheer size of the bridges is hard to capture, and there are many intriguing natural features in the area to catch your eye.

I hope you get a chance to visit the Bridges too someday, it's well worth a visit.

Enjoy the photographs!
