Natural Bridges

The Natural Bridges Park is a relatively small park.
There are three natural bridges, the Sipapu Bridge, the Kachina Bridge and the Owachomo Bridge.
There is a 9 miles one-way loop through the park with several overlooks from where you can see and imagine the hugeness of these bridges.
But you have to take a hike to get a closer view or to get to the base of them.
We hiked to the Sipapu Bridge. The trailheads are well marked. While you hike you can enjoy the waterformed sandstone and you are fascinated about the huge size of the Bridge ( 220 ft hight, 268 ft span).
We visited the Park in later October and we had such a good weather
( blue sky and warm) and the park was not crowded at all.
