Thanks Michelle....I've crossed this bridge five times now....once on a mule....it is a thrill everytime. I'd like to make at least one more journey down to the bottom of the Canyon....on my 65th I want to go from the North Rim to the South....not all in one day.....but do it anyway with a layover at Phantom....it is heaven down there....the stars....oh the stars....I've never seen so many.....Cheers and have a wonderful evening.....=^..^= #9844277

Thanks Neal & Tammy for the comments....Tammy it really isn't very scarey when you see the bridge....it's quite well supported and doesn't bounce like a suspension bridge....it is a beautiful experience to do this....I have to get into better shape and hike more....who knows....maybe we'll see you there one day! Have a wonderful day! #9845258

Great capture of a special place. Several years back, I started at Navajo Bridge and over about seven days, paddled down and pulled out at South Kaibab Trail and then hiked out. The party I was with continued on for another 100 miles. I have often wanted to finish my trip. #9896749
