Gary and I hiked the 1 mile trail to Hickman Natural Bridge. The trail was mostly uphill-the park brochure called it a moderately strenuous hike. Sure seemed longer than a mile to us. The scenery along the trail was beautiful. We made a lot of stops to be sure to see everything. Most of the trail is open which means that if the weather is warm, expect to sweat alot. Take plenty of water and be sure to wear good shoes. Lots to see, so don't be in a hurry. Go early in the morning before it gets too hot.
It was cool under this section. Nice breeze blew beneath this rock. Don't know if it is a cave, bridge, or arch.
Lots of neat rock formations. The colors were very beautiful.
We passed this painted hand along the way. Saw more painted hands by the bridge.
This was built to store the crops of the Pueblo people. Click on the link above the first picture if you want to see more photos.
