Navajo Bridge(s) by Terence Russell

The two spans are jointly known as the Navajo Bridge, one being the original Navajo Bridge, the first non-ferry crossing of the Colorado River north of the Grand Canyon, while the second span (1995) is the replacement for the original bridge (1929) when it could no longer bear the traffic. The spans cross the Colorado River at Marble Canyon along US Hwy 89 near Page, Arizona. It is photographed so much that it is identified on Google Maps (pan in closely). this makes an excellent poster

    Cool perspective Terence. The roads almost look like they don’t go anywhere but straight into the rock.

  • Thanks! They almost do, Merrilyn. The road curves sharply to the left just over the bridge and a cut-off goes right to Lee’s Ferry.
