This Terrifying Bridge in Utah Will Make Your Stomach Drop

If you’re looking for a scenic drive, Utah has plenty to offer. One great example is Hell’s Backbone Road, which stretches from Escalante to Boulder (about 38 miles). The gravel road is narrow and winding, eventually climbing to an elevation of more than 9,000 feet. About halfway through the drive, you’ll come to Hell’s Backbone Bridge.

The bridge is so narrow, that if one car stops, everyone else has to stop and wait. You can see an example of this at the 20 second mark.
