The Hite Crossing Bridge

The Hite Crossing Bridge is an arch bridge which carries Utah State Route 95

across the Colorado River northwest of Blanding, Utah. The bridge informally

marks the upstream limit of Lke Powell and the end of Cataract Canyon of the

Colorado River, but when the lake is at normal water elevation, the water can

back up over 30 miles (48 km) upstream into Cataract Canyon. The bridge

is the only automobile bridge spanning the Colorado River between the Glen

Canyon Bridge, 185 miles (298 km) downstream near the Glen Danyon Dam

and the US Route 191 bridge 110 miles (180 km) upstream near Moab. The

bridge is near Hite Marina on Lake Powell, and a small airstrip is immediately

adjacent to the north side of the bridge.        ~ Wikipedia

The bridge looks rather fragile in contrast with the gorgeous rocks.

Very impressive isn't it, the remoteness of it all appeals too

I especially like the second shot. It just shows what a tiniest impression that Man has made on such a vast landscape. It's a heck of detour if that bridge every gets closed. What were the water levels like in Lake Powell?

I guess this is really HUGE, Elizabeth?
The bridge looks so slight Elizabeth.
Love that second shot. So cool where at the horizon the rock changes colour.

It looks so thin and flimsy in amongst the rock formations.
A nice simple but elegant bridge E

Two wonderful views, Elizabeth.

Nothing else by Sapiens for miles and miles!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wonderfully so!
It's a handsome and rather inconspicuous arch!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think that's exactly what they were going for, Tom!
