Steel & Stone

img_5259In Coconino County, Arizona.

Steel arch girders supporting the Glen Canyon Dam Bridge, just upstream from the Glen Canyon Dam.  Built in the late 1950’s, the bridge was the highest steel arch bridge in the world at the time and is still one of the highest in the country. The bridge deck carries Route 89 about 700 feet above the Colorado River.

The man-made gray steel offers interesting contrast against the naturally rich red rock face it’s embedded in.
