The amazing force of water has cut three spectacular natural bridges in White Canyon at Natural Bridges National Monument, located 42 miles west of Blanding or 47 miles north of Mexican Hat. These stunning rock bridges have Hopi Indian names: delicate Owachomo means ‘rock mounds', massive Kachina means ‘dancer', while Sipapu, the second largest natural bridge in the state, means ‘place of emergence'. A nine-mile scenic drive has overlooks of the bridges, canyons and a touch of history with ancient Puebloan ruins. Moderate to difficult trails, some with metal stairs, lead down to each bridge. A longer trail follows the stream bed beneath all three bridges.
