Today's are across the North Fork of the Virgin River in Zion National Park.

By the time that river gets to Phoenix, though, it's usually devoid of actual water.

Is that a line from a C&W song?

That one looks like it might usefully be converted to a giant trebuchet.

The one closest to camera is basically a motorway, so yes.

I know we've had Glen Canyon and Navajo bridges over the Mighty Colorado before, so I didn't bother with any pictures of them today.  Not sure whether I've done these before, and CBA to check.
