Natural Bridge

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 November 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Though the name tends to be misleading, Natural Bridge (elevation of 8,627 feet) is one of several natural arches in Bryce Canyon and creates a beautiful scene at this viewpoint. This arch, sculpted from some of the reddest rock of the Claron Formation (rich in iron oxide minerals), poses a stark contrast to the dark green of the Ponderosa forest that peeks through the arch from the canyon below.

Remus from Portugal

A fantastic natural place.
Given the erosion we can see on the right side, I would say it will be an ephemeral arch. Sooner or later, it will cease to exist.
