Also within easy driving distance from Goosenecks State Park in south eastern Utah is the Natural Bridges National Monument. Natural bridges, as I was to learn always originate as a result of flowing water, while arches, such as in Arches National Park may form on ridge tops from other forms of erosion. Once formed however, some of the same forces begin to act on both types of arch.
I did one of the loop hikes in the park which takes one under and through two of the major natural bridge formations. The trail also follows the creek bottom, and it was interesting to see flood debris hanging in the trees 10 feet overhead in places.
Earlier explorers had to resort to climbing down trees to get into certain portions of the canyon.
And on occasion there were opportunities to take to the skies for some more photos!
