My first evening at Natural Bridges National Monument in southeast Utah. Only a few hours to begin to scratch the surface of this place. Which I quickly realized you can’t do by staying up top of White Canyon and merely looking down from the overlooks along the Loop Road.
I hiked down to get some great late afternoon shots of Sipapu Bridge. The October air so clear, with beautiful cumulus clouds set against the deep blue Utah high country sky.
On to Kachina Bridge, the second of the three natural stone bridges (carved through the sandstone walls by flowing water, unlike arches), but it was already in shadow so I only checked it out from the overlook. Will have to make my first visit down to that one soon.
On to the third bridge, Owachomo. Which is also the easiest of the three to hike down to, by far. I was fortunate to have a beautiful line of clouds to the south. So I maneuvered down almost underneath the Bridge so I could use its wide opening as a frame.
