Inscription:

We went to Natural Bridges. We were pretty tired and did not hike down to any of the bridges. We then drove on to the Nelsons in Glendale, Utah.

Bottom: Owachomo - "rock mounts", is the oldest bridge, about 10 million years old.

Top Left: Sipapu - "the place of emergence," is larger than the other bridges in the monument.
