Boats Passing Below Marble Canyon Navajo Bridges 0659

(8502 x 3956) Those traveling across the country on Highway 89A between Bitter Springs and Jacob Lake AZ arrive at two bridges similar in appearance spanning the Colorado River. These two bridges, one historic and one new, represent one of only seven land crossings of the Colorado River for 750 miles (1207 km).

 

The historic bridge now serves as a pedestrian bridge and provides visitors with a breathtaking view of the Colorado River 467 feet (142m) below.
