Padinago's trip to the USA in 2008

Day 13 - Natural Bridges NM and Canyonlands NP

Today we will visit Natural Bridges National Monument.

Again it is very hot and we make sure to take enough water with us in the cooler. During one of our hikes (horsecollar trail, Kachina bridge) we start talking with an American couple, they are retired and are making a big tour. Very friendly people, the whole time they offer us food and drinks and we meet them several times today during our different hikes.

At the Owachomo bridge we sit down under the arch on a big rock together with this couple in order to enjoy the shade and the little wind. The man gives us his e-mail address and asks to stay in touch, as time comes to say goodbye we notice this man is very sad to leave us…

We now head towards Newspaper Rock, a big rock with drawings from the Indians and... from the tourists.

We still drive through Canyonlands and the scenery is impressive.

In the evening we decide to go back to the Brewery for dinner, we like it so much we do not want to take the risk to try something else.

Daytrip approx. 485 km
