Trip Report [hide]

Having been in the desert for 8 days we were running short on time and energy so my dad agreed to supply a car shuttle to shorten the hike.

The two natural bridges were cool and the hike along the river was pleasant. There were a few ruins and petroglyphs in the canyon bottom too which I didn't expect. If we'd had a little more time to explore I bet we could have found several more.

If you're doing the loop hike I definitely recommend doing it counterclockwise like we did because there is significantly less vertical gain necessary to climb out of the canyon near Kachina Bridge than at Sipapu Bridge.
