Owachomo Bridge   1 comment

Wispy clouds and a star-filled night sky make for a dreamy backdrop to Owachomo Bridge at Natural Bridges National Monument in Utah. Home to some of the darkest skies in the country, Natural Bridges is a stargazer’s paradise and was designated the world’s first International Dark Sky Park. On a given night, it’s possible to see up to 15,000 stars! Photo by Ryan McGinley. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 3/9/16.

A Bridge To The Sky   Leave a comment

The three majestic natural bridges of Natural Bridges National Monument in Utah invite you to ponder the power of water in a landscape usually defined by its absence. View them from an overlook, or hit the trails and experience their grandeur from below. Declared a National Monument in 1908, the bridges are named “Kachina,” “Owachomo” and “Sipapu” in honor of the Native Americans that once made this area their home. This is also home to some of the darkest night skies in the United States. Photo: Manish Mamtani. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 5/29/14.
