This week’s photo is of the Navajo Bridge looking out from the edge of Marble Canyon, near Lee’s Ferry (Northern Arizona). It was a cloudy afternoon and the canyon’s red rock was beautiful. The original bridge (left side) is 834 feet long and 467 feet tall – in other words it’s a long, long way down. Built in 1929 it became too old and unsafe for all traffic and a new bridge was built (right side) in 1995 which is a little longer and higher.
Interestingly this bridge is the only road crossing of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon for nearly 600 miles.
