Navajo Bridge - 1 © by © Hany G. Jadaa © Prince John Photography
Clear

Still on Day 6 of my trip through Arizona country.

After driving a short distance away from the area of the majestic Vermillion Cliffs, I arrived at the Arizona/Utah border.

In order to get to the Northern Rim of the Grand Canyon, one would have to cross the Colorado River. The Navajo Bridge crosses the Colorado River over what is called Marble Canyon, which is situated near Lee’s Ferry in the state of Arizona. The Navajo Bridge becomes one of two crossing points to the southern part of Utah, the other crossing point being at the Glen Canyon Bridge, which is a few miles up from the City of Page in Arizona. The Navajo Bridge is the only roadway crossing of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon for about 600 miles.

This is an image of the Navajo Bridge Visitor Center looking north towards the continuation of the Vermillion Cliffs in the background.

Hope you like it.

Since joining RB I’ve greatly enjoyed being part of a lovely community of wonderful people. I’ve also made some new friends that I hope to meet one day in person. I have several passions/hobbies/professions (music, photography, martial arts & yes environmental engineering to name a few)! I am very blessed being able to work in all of these. Please feel free to visit & provide honest opinion on my photos as I am still learning (a day that goes by without learning anything is a wasted day).

    Another fantastic image Hany……but no video unfortunately. I am getting behind with my reviewing, but will catch up soon. Utah is a place I really want to visit badly, as I know there are so many amazing areas and views to be had. I have definitely come to the conclusion that I am living in the wrong place….I want to live out the rest of my life with the beauty of red rocks surrounding me :o) Excellent sharp focus as always my friend. I much prefer the Vermillion Cliffs behind the makeshift stonework in the forefront, however, what can you do. Awesome image yet again. Susan

  • Hi Susan; ahhh… what can I say; I am trying my friend; I am trying (LOL); this video thing (LOL). It is a matter of finding the right video for an image. May be I need help here (LOL). Ok.. back to the image. This is not really a favorite image of mine, however I posted it as a milestone in my journey story, and also to show perspective on how HUGE these cliffs are. I do too prefer the Vermillion Cliffs in the background; did not care much for the stonework in the foreground either. May be one day you and I and Joyce we’ll go there in the middle of the night and re-build the place with red sandstone. What do you say to that? And while we’re at it, we’ll just build you your dream home facing these cliffs. I’m sure you’d like that. Can I have the spare room facing the river? LOL…. Thanks Susan; really appreciate your support and your friendship. Hany

    My dear Hany………….great information here about the importance of this bridge as a crossing point over the Colorado River but I have to agree with Susan regarding the bridge itself………………………it has to be in keeping with the majesty of the surroundings but nothing man made can come close I my opinion………………..actually the thought of doing this wonderful journey is giving me goose bumps………………….always a good sign……………….what have you done Hany?………………….well, you have brought us these gorgeous images to look at time and time again………………..from your friend with goose bumps in Ireland………………..I think I need to put the heat on………………Joyce!!

  • Hello Joyce….. I agree with both of you ladies…… you see I am the kind of guy who agrees with witty and intelligent ladies like you and Susan….. nothing man made can come close to the majesty of these cliffs…and definitely what’s with the stone work? Like I told Susan, I think we shoudl all go on a special trip to re-build this center with red sandstone….. we should do this in the middle of the night so we won’t get arrested by the local Navajo women who run the center…. and while we’re at it we should build Susan a huge mansion facing the cliffs….. a spare room for me facing the river would be more than adequate to satisfy my needs…….. and how about you my dear….. a masion worthy of a queen next to us would do? Would you prefer the cliff view or the river view? And with the amount of heat they get in Arizona, there is no worrying about goosebumps or needing to put the heat on…… I’ll make sure you get all the warmth you need (LOL)….. from your warm an dreamy little friend…..

    A terrific shot Hany. I’d love to see it early or late in the day.

  • Many thanks Al. I am sure it would look very different and probably much better early on in the day or later in the sunset. Thanks for the visit and for leaving a comment.

    I think your idea is wonderful….rebuild the stonework with sandstone, the three of us can manage it, especially with the thought of that dream home facing the Vermillion Cliffs. My dream home would have windows facing every every aspect of the beauty surrounding it, so no matter where I was within, there would be nothing but fantastic view. Hany you are quite welcome to chose whichever room would suit your taste to sit and ponder with your camera, and take gazillions of fantastic images of whatever your heart desires. Please put plan into action :o)

  • Alrighty then Susan…. plan is in motion…. tickets and booked….. tools are bought….. I’m signing off on the engineering drawings. I’ll take the hammer; you take the chisel; and we’ll give Joyce the screwdriver (the one with the twist of naval oranges – LOL). And with all the wonderful support and sense of humour, I am sure we can all get the job all done within about a…… say a couple of years or so?. Suits me perfectly well. Excellent. You in? LOL.
