Rainbow Bridge is the crowning glory of the Lake Powell boat tour.  A short mile-long walk from the National Park wharf in Bridge Canyon gets you to this natural wonder.  It is so much bigger in person than in any picture I’ve seen.  That was one surprise.

The other unhappy surprises were that you are not allowed to go anywhere near it because it is a sacred Native American site.  Also, I would have really loved to get around the other side of it and see what it looks like from the other view.  Also not allowed.  Oh well, sometimes with such an impressive sight you have to just take what you can get.

Do you know what the difference is between a bridge and an arch?  A bridge is formed by water flowing under it and an arch is formed by shifting earth below causing rock to fall out.  So don’t call this an arch!
