National Monumentstands majestically above the clear blue water creating an awe-inspiring sight. Photographs simply cannot capture
the size of this monolith. The world's largest natural bridge, Rainbow Bridge is 290 feet tall, spans 275 feet, is 33 feet wide and 42 feet thick
. It is called "Nonnoshoshi" by the Navajo people, or "rainbow turned to stone." The stone bridge is formed of Navajo Sandstone at the top
and Kayenta Sandstone at the base. Its deep spiritual significance should be respected and visitors are asked not to walk beyond the
viewing area. Fishing, swimming, rock throwing and walking pets are prohibited.
