photoblog image Navajo bridge...

Navajo bridge...

                       Or bridges, crossing the Colorado river, 467 feet below in Marble canyon. The original is on the right, now a footbridge, the newer one carries highway 89A. This is a favourite spot for Californian Condors to come and perch. We've been lucky enough to see numerous ones.

They are quite elegant, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed they are Ray, when they built the new one they copied the old design, except for the road width.
I like this shot, Frank! Old and new - but you wouldn't know it from this angle!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks elizabeth. You wouldn't would you.
Ces ponts ont l'air d'être identiques.
Frank L Croston.: They built the second one to replicate the first Martine, its just wider for traffic.
It is amazing to compare the two structures...
Frank L Croston.: They are quite amazing structures.

Wonderful engineering Frank, the bridge not the photograph.
Frank L Croston.: They are great works Andrew.
Gobsmacked is the only word for this Frank.
Frank L Croston.: If you say so R...Err Bill. Thanks.
How fabulous is that. I had no idea they built bridges into the cliffs like this.
Frank L Croston.: Great aren't they.
I can only marvel at the level of engineering that went into the construction of these bridges, Frank. The natural environment is breathtaking to look at.
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Beverley, its a wonderful place I've been lucky to visit a few times now.
Two terrific bridges, at least they had the common sense to make them both look alike.
Frank L Croston.: They are two fine bridges, I'm glad they replicated the first one.
Quite a feat of engineering! I'd love to see those condors!
Frank L Croston.: Indeed it is Tom. Oh they are a sight to see! We have seen a few now, magnificent to see in flight.
