We met Don and Dorothy at the Natural Bridges BLM overflow campground on Wednesday and have been here since. It is just a gravel lot off a short dirt road but it’s free, the views are lovely, and we’ve just about had the place to ourselves.
We hiked the trails to all 3 bridges in the park, and though they are fairly short trails, they are pretty steep and strenuous. In fact, the trail to Sipapu Bridge had many stairways and 3 ladders made of tree limbs to climb down. I almost turned around at the first ladder, but Jim managed to talk me down it, and the other 2 were fairly easy. Going back up them was not a problem at all.
Here are some photos of the bridges and some views from the trails. This is another beautiful Utah park, minus the big crowds we saw at Zion, Bryce and Arches.
