Description

Sheltered Juniper
Juniperus osteosperma (Utah juniper) Seen near Kachina Bridge

Kachina Bridge Natural Bridges National Monument

Kachina is "the middle bridge." Spanning the canyon equidistant from both Owachomo and Sipapu bridges. It is larger than Owachomo but smaller than Sipapu. Proving that canyons are dynamic rather than static, approximately 4,000 tons of sandstone fell from the inside of the Kachina bridge opening in June, 1992, enlarging the opening as it has doubtless been enlarged time and time again.
