Oh Gaelyn, I love your new header photo. Brilliant! What an interesting post about the bridges and condors. Thanks for sharing.

great photos of Navajo Bridge. I have a couple of condor photos with tags I will post in about two weeks after the slot canyon photos. I am being a tease in leading up to the wonderful photos of slot canyon. i think you will really like the tongue and log photos from the slot canyons. I love it when photographers go to the same areas yet we all take such different perspectives. it is fun. i am enjoying your site and glad to hook up with you here in arizona. You are quite the adventurer. you will love the guy that owns Hummer Adventures. he is quite the active entrepreneur. there is hardly anyone in the slot canyons a max of 14 total ever, which is really nice for photos.

Nice post. I do love standing on the bridge and, in the true sophomore behaviour, spit. But at least I wait til the boaters go by (and of course, nothing makes it to the river on those hot days). I wonder what it is like looking up at the bridge from the river?

I think we are following each other around lately! Great photos from the bridge!

Another batch of gorgeous photos! I am so enjoying touring this area of the country with you. It's been a while since we were there and will be a year or two before we are able to go back.

In the desert, there is a Condor with no Name. There is just beauty manifesting in a multitude of forms.

Hope you had fun in the Sun of the Grand Canyon this Season Gaelyn.

Hi Gaelyn,

Your pictures are so beautiful! Is the Old bridge just used for hikers now?

Janie said...

Interesting to see the condors hanging out under the bridge. And I like the last shadow shot. Nice!

West of where I live is the well known tourist route called the Garden Route. In the Tsitsikamma area of the Garden Route there are many gauges with magnificent bridges. All of them are cement bridges though and not steel like these. The gauges look very different as well.

These photos rather made my knees weak because of the heights! I'm not normally prone to that but wow. These are such informative photos.

My wife has hiked the Canyon, but I have not. We plan on visiting in the near future. Thanks for the post.

I don't normally fear crossing a bridge, but I find those two to be very intimidating!! ;)

I love this set of photos - so incredibly pretty!

Louise said...

I'm sure I must have been on this bridge, but I don't remember it. I have to not think about how far above the canyon floor things like that are when I am on them.

I'm working backwards. Dying to see the Antelope Canyon post(s)!
