Rainbow Bridge – A Natural Wonder  

Rainbow Bridge isn’t a rainbow, but it is pretty neat. Water flowing from the mountains to the Colorado River eroded sandstone over millions of years. The water caused a bridge or arch of sandstone to form. This natural bridge is almost 300 feet high and 270 feet wide.

The Navajo (Reads like: Navaho) people believe Rainbow Bridge is a sacred place. They see the bridge as proof of the gods who send rain, rainbows and clouds. In the hot desert, rain is a valuable thing.
