"Navajo Bridge, Arizona" United States of America Off The Beaten Path Tip by DPando

 
 

I left Page (AZ) that morning towards Grand Canyon North Rim. I admit that i missed out to go to Horshoeback next to Page .. my fault. So i drove along route 89 south passing by a slice in the mountain (Antelope pass) and an impressive view from the top of that cliff over Bitter Springs and Navajo Bridge to the right.. there's a pullover on the road where piles of people beheld the fascintating and desertic panorama.. Amazing view... the road drops steep and fast to the fork of bitter springs (nothing to see, nothing to offer, no place to take a coffee) and i turned right driving paralel to the cliff in the middle of the desert with the Colorado river meandering on my left.. the road finally turns to the crossing Colorado by the Navajo bridge a beautiful structure with 2 small rest area at both sides (marble canyon).. the further one has a visitor's center where i took the picture with Arizona flag and other snaps. After this point there is Vermilion Cliffs where there are several restaurants and a gas station ready to dry your thirsty mouth. The road follows to Jacob lake amidst lush forest and beautiful forest nothing similar to the desert passed before !!!
