There were several condors drafting in, around and above both the old bridge and the new. Beautiful jewelry with friendly vendors and a nice little museum and gift shop. Nice quick tourist stop.

The restrooms/center were closed, so we had to park at the other end...not a big deal. We walked across and walked back. The green water through the canyon was interesting, but I wouldn't go out of your way to see this.

The green Colorado river is somehow unfamiliar to me. I imagined that it would be a perfect place to have bungee jumping. Even it's a suitable place to commit suicide~ Oh~~~ That's a joke! Don't be serious~ Even if someone wants to, this place will change his mind!

This was on our way as we took 89A, because of the construction on 89, wanted to see it anyway, awesome view from here, kinda scary at first to look down, because the river is WAY down there, but worth the walk out on it, and see the new bridge that traffic is on now, and how they carved into...

Had to take a detour to get here because 89 is washed out between page and here. Then we get there and the visitors center is closed. I am very glad I got to see these dual bridges and walk across Marble Canyon, but I think everyone else was annoyed at adding an hour to our driving time for a... More

We stopped here on our way from Grand Canyon to Page.I couldn't believe there wasn't a charge to go on the bridge but there isn't! VIsitor center was closed but lots of informative signage to give you the facts. Amazing views! Saw some kayakers on the beach below us. There were also a few Navajo ladies there with some beautiful... More

While driving from Bryce to the North Rim we stopped here to stretch our legs. What we got was an unexpected surprise. Three Condors flying very close to the bridge. One of them flew within 10 yards of us so we could get a very good look. They are very impressive at that distance. We'll worth the short stop

We stopped here on our way to the North Rim. Unfortunately the visitor center was closed for remodeling so we walked across the bridge and took pictures. Their are great views of the canyon from the bridge and it is fun to say you walked across the Grand Canyon but it would have been nice to learn more about the... More

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how this bridge could be built without being able to support it from below. Quit an achievement for the workers who had to risk their lives day in day out. The view from the bridge is spectacular and I took some nice artistic pictures of the steel structure.

This is the crossing point over the Colorado River in Marble Canyon. Two bridges, the older (now pedestrian only) and newer vehicular bridge are side by side. For many GC area visitors, this is their best view of the Colorado. On the south side are several Navajo vendors with better than average art and jewelry for sale.
