Owachomo

The name Owachomo here refers not to a sneeze, but to one of three bridges in Natural Bridges National Monument, and is a Native American term.   This is the most slender of the bridges in this park, and is just 9 feet (3 m) thick at its narrowest point:

I appreciate all you readers/viewers who keep me on my toes.  My last post had the name of another bridge entirely wrong (Thanks Luen)!

Thanks for viewing!

Kachina Bridge

Kachina Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument is not easily visible from the roadway that loops through the area.  A hike to the canyon bottom reveals its massive structure:

Sipapu Bridge

As can be seen from this panorama, it’s a great spot for a picnic during a thunderstorm or an earthquake.  This National Monument is well known for its very dark night skies, which in itself is worth the visit.

All The Best,
