Navajo Bridge Interpretive Center

The Interpretive Center is a lovely stone and wood structure

with a picnic area, a book store, and several memorial plaques

to the explorers, adventurers, and researchers who've brought

so much knowledge of these remote areas to us.

I have just read the wiki account of the earlier bridge, Elizabeth. Imagine its being christened with a bottle of ginger ale because of prohibition!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Amazing isn't it! Thanks for looking at the history of the place - I think it's interesting!

I never knew that there was so much information to go along with the sights of the canyon.

I like the strong lines of the shadows especially. I like your viewpoint, too, to include the bridges. The rivers were so important not only to the Native Americans for their lives but also to help to open the west to explorers.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wonderful shadows aren't they! Thank you very much, Alan! You are right - a much better way to get from point A to point B in some cases! smile
A totally intersting post Elizabeth, once again one wonders at how bridges over places like this are actually built, especially in times gone by.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you think so, Brian! It is amazing to comprehend.... you might like this link regarding the building of the bridges:
