Hickman Natural Bridge


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I visited Capitol Reef National Park in Utah on our western trip in September.  That was the first time we had visited the park.

One of the more popular hikes at Capitol Reef is a relatively easy (the only kind we look for nowadays) to Hickman Natural Bridge.  The hike is just about 2 miles long and offers some spectacular views as well as a trail around and under the bridge.

Your image of Hickman Bridge is just gorgeous! We took that hike, too; and it was a learning experience for us. We didn't carry water since it was such a short hike. But Utah isn't Indiana. The climate was so hot and dry, and there was virtually no shade along the trail. I was dehydrated within half a mile. We both chugged down two bottles of water when the hike was finished.

Love that photo of the Natural Bridge; This made me realize that I haven't worked on any of my pictures from Capitol Reef yet..... Need to find them and work on a blog post from that area.... Thanks for sharing.... My memories of that amazing trip will be with me FOREVER...

Love,
Wifey

I have never heard of this one. The rock looks stripped, is it really, or just the light. But the SKY!!!!

I love it when I find fellow (mature) hikers with a camera.

I'm from West Texas...miss the desert and rocks...deep red horizons...

I'll be back :)
