Kachina Natural Bridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 1 March 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

The bridge is named for the Kachina dancers that play a central role in Hopi religious tradition. This bridge has a span of 204 feet (62.2 meters), a height of 210 feet (64 meters), and a thickness of 93 feet (28.3 meters). It's the youngest of the natural bridges in the Monument. White Canyon floodwaters still work to enlarge its span.

Texture and patterns in the rocks (look almost "made by hand") draw the eyes to examine all layers, but....the presence of the vegetation cuddled by the rocks steals the show!
