Photographer's Note

Utah's Natural Bridges National Monument offers a unique opportunity to 'saunter' inside a Cedar Mesa sandstone canyon.

After National Geographic Magazine publicized the Bridges in 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt approved the area as Utah's first National Monument.

In 2007, Natural Bridges became the first "International Dark-Sky Park" for some of the darkest and clearest skies in the U.S.

There is also an Ancestral Puebloan ruin abandoned more than 700 years ago visible from an overlook a short hike from Bridge View Drive. The ruin is named Horsecollar Ruin after two granaries with unusual oval shaped doors.
