Another stop on my motorcycle trip, The historic Navajo Bridge.  It’s located on Highway 89A near Lee’s Ferry, between Bitter Springs and Jacob lake, AZ.  It was built in 1929 and was replaced by a new bridge in 1993 for safety reasons.  There’s a parking area next to the old bridge where Navajo people were selling jewelry and other items.  I walked out on the bridge and was able to see a few people on rafts drifting down the Colorado River.

The Historic Dewey Bridge.  Located along Highway 128 and the Colorado River in the Colorado Riverway Recreation Area.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I was delighted to discover this historic bridge on my motorcycle ride.  Of course I had to stop and take some pictures!

This bridge was the longest suspension bridge in Utah until April 2008 when it was destroyed by a fire started by a child playing with matches.
