This Stunning Natural Arch In Arizona’s Lake Powell Is Visible For The First Time In Over 50 Years
There are quite a few natural arches in Arizona to explore, and most of them are well known and documented. Gregory Natural Bridge, however, is an entirely different story. This 137-foot Navajo sandstone arch has been submerged beneath the waters of Lake Powell for over 50 years! Prolonged drought conditions have revealed it, and the result is truly stunning.
The arch may not be around forever – sandstone is extremely porous, so erosion happens more quickly than with most other types of rock. That’s just one more reason to see it as soon as possible! Did you know about Gregory Natural Bridge? If so, have you seen it in person? What other hidden wonders do you think exist in Lake Powell? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
