It took us 6 hours up and back, five people have fallen to their death in the past 10 years but if you go slow and steady it’s a piece of “well …. be careful” . A wonderful hike …

Glen Canyon Utah

We are on day four traveling around Arizona and Utah. Yesterday we were finding pot on our hike in Sedona, today we are on a boat motoring up Lake Powell making our way through Glen Canyon to reach the tallest natural bridge in the world, RAINBOW BRIDGE.

The boat comes close enough to the canyon wall you can touch it.GlenCanyon-9

Once the boat docks it’s a short hike to the monument. 234 feet (71 m) tall Rainbow Bridge was not known to the outside world until 1909.
