Day 1 - Utah
Saturday, August 12, 1978: We drove out west from Minnesota and visited Dewey Bridge near Moab, Utah.
|Here's how it looks now (as seen on Google Maps Street View).|
|The bridge was decommissioned in 1988, then destroyed by fire in 2008.|
|There's now a new bridge in its place, but the metal portion of the old bridge is still visible. It's only the wooden portion that has disappeared. Here's how it looks now.|
|But back to 1978: here's a closer look at the bridge.|
|We followed the Colorado River for a while en route to our next destination. Here's a pretty view about four miles from Dewey Bridge.|
|We arrived in Canyonlands National Park where we drove to the end of Grand View Point Road and enjoyed the view at Grand View Point.|
|Here's the view to the south from Grand View Point.|
|Returning along Grand View Point Road, here is the view from Orange Cliffs Overlook to the west.|
|Here's a view of Buck Canyon to the east.|
Here's the view from Candlestick Tower Overlook to the west.
|Finally, this is Mesa Arch, probably the most recognizable feature of Canyonlands.|
