Natural Bridges National Monument is a unique high desert environment that contains three massive natural bridges. This image is of Kachina natural bridge that is 210 feet high, a span of210 feet and 93 feet thick. Kuchina is the Hopi Indian name for spirit. Armstrong Canyon joins White Canyon just downstream from the bridge; floods in each canyon abraded opposite sides of the rock fin that later became Kachina Bridge.
It was our delight to find that once again the National Monuments are unique and special places that have wisely been preserved. The weather this morning was 41 degrees with a stiff wind in the canyons.
