Utah's Bridges: SR-12 Escalante River Bridge (2)

May 2006 (37.775 Degrees, -111.419 Degrees) Escalante River Bridge
This photo of the SR-12 Escalante River Bridge really just shows the river, the riparian vegetation, and the canyon walls. The single span steel girder bridge is barely noticeable, which may have been the bridge designer's goal. However, I wanted to show that the bridge actually crosses the Escalante River (with its low banks and sandy bottom) since yesterday's photo just showed the abutment.

We have been traveling southwest over the last few days from the Green River Bridge in Emery County to the Freemont River Bridge in Wayne County to the Escalante River Bridge in Garfield County. Tomorrow we will continue southwest to the Paria River Bridge in Kane County, Utah near the border with Arizona.
