From the Grand Canyon to the Hoover Dam, wonders both natural and man-made abound in Arizona. We could wax poetic for ages about everything there is to see, do, and ogle here! But of all the architectural marvels to be found in our state, one of the most remarkable is the historic Navajo Bridge in Arizona, built nearly 100 years ago. This engineering marvel is among the tallest bridges in Arizona – and it was once considered to be the tallest bridge in the world! While the original bridge is now closed to vehicular traffic, its legacy will never be forgotten.
