Westwater Natural Bridge, San Juan, Blanding, Utah
Utah

Westwater Natural Bridge is located about 2 miles southwest of Blanding, San Juan County, Utah.  This natural rock bridge is located on the west rim of Westwater Canyon.  Access is via a paved road that arrives on the east canyon rim.  The bridge is a bit difficult to see 135 feet away from the east canyon rim and there is no improved hiking trail through the canyon to the bridge.  There use to be a foot bridge across the canyon but it has been removed.

However, the hike is short and possible with a little care and patience with the rocks and thick brush in the bottom of the canyon.

The underside of this 80 foot bridge is home to a number of Swollows and their mud nests.  This image was taken July 10, 2011.
