This was an unexpected treat with a great view of the Colorado River beneath the walking bridge. The only down side are that the restrooms are pit toilets with no water.

This is an interesting stop in the Marble Canyon area. It is often a hangout for CA Condors, so keep a look out. There are 2 bridges, the old one is now the pedestrian bridge. The info on the plaques is interesting. The views of the Colorado river are great. You will often see rafting trips below you. Take the time to make the stop - you won't be disappointed.

I loved this place from the first time I saw it - the bridge is so elegant and surroundings are so nice! In spring the water was emerald green, this time in August it was muddy, but still the views are nice. But this time we were lucky to spot three California condors in a really close proximity - ##02, 54 and 73 - really unique experience to see those rare birds up close! There are only 220 in the wild.

If you're taking highway 89 south from Utah to Arizona, you're probably going to go via Page, AZ and see the Glenn Canyon Dam. That's a nice trip, but if you've seen it before consider leaving Highway 89 at Kanab, UT and instead taking 89A (Alternate). You'll bypass Page and the Glenn Canyon Dam, but you will see some of the most beautiful and unspoiled country in the high desert.

The problem remains, however, how do you get across the Colorado River? Well, you know, there was a solution before the Glenn Canyon Dam / Bridge was built. You see, Highway 89A is actually the "old" route, the original route. And there, waiting for you, are two of the darndest bridges you will ever see. The 1920's Navajo Bridge and the 1995 replacement. They are beautiful and located an arms length from each other in the middle of the most gorgeous canyon.

The Glenn Canyon Dam is impressive and not to be missed, but if you've seen it before, I can't recommend 89A enough. These Bridges are special. There's a great interpretative centre and great parking so you can walk across the old bridge (the old bridge is for walking, the new one for driving). I've driven all over the west and found this by accident and it was my good fortune. Very off-the-beaten-path.

Impressive engineering, magnificent view of the Vermillon Cliffs around it, and the brown pulsing Colorado River below.
