A “Natural Bridge” is different from an Arch, in that a Bridge is formed by a stream. This bridge was formed by a waterfall, and so is rather unique. It is the 6th largest Natural Bridge in the US (I’m guessing the 5 larger bridges are within a 20 mile radius). It was an icy trail, and Carmine was the only one to slip and fall into the creek, and/or to freak out on a rocky/tight part of the trail and need the help of two humans to get her squeaking along. She ate a big stick and felt better. This is usually a very crowded trail, but today it was nearly deserted– cold and snow and ice are great tourist deterrents for the desert (and to fill the sentence out, for dessert that afternoon we had a butterscotch malted milkshake at Milt’s Stop & Eat.)
