Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Page

4.7
#4 of 8 in Nature in Page
One of the world's largest natural bridges, Rainbow Bridge National Monument spans 71 m (234 ft) in the isolated foothills of Navajo Mountain. Though known for centuries by Native Americans who held the bridge scared, and sighted by trappers, prospectors, and cowboys in the 1800s, the existence of this massive sandstone bridge was not made public knowledge until 1909. To reach it, take a boat trip on Lake Powell, followed by a 1.6 km (1 mi) hike from the dock that crosses rugged terrain. Both the bridge and the trail are on Navajo tribal lands, and the National Park Service asks visitors to be respectful of this. It is not illegal to approach or walk under the arch, but the Park Service requests that you stay in the viewing area.

    A few hours boat trip on Lake Powell takes the visitor to the path of the Rainbow Bridge. The last part of must be, defeated walking, but what still emphasizes the power of the natural monument. Shipping and Rainbow Bridge are worth the visit, because you can learn much interesting about the Navajo Indians, the construction of the dam and reservoir and the surrounding area on the drive.
