It was an absolutely gorgeous drive.
This is the sort of scenery that we drove through as we headed south on Utah Highway 95.
Our route took us through the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, pictured above.

The Natural Bridges National Monument was also on this loop drive. Following are some pictures from that area.
As a side note, the choice of terms, between "bridge" and "arch," appears to be somewhat arbitrary. The Natural Arch and Bridge Society identifies a bridge as a subtype of arch that is primarily water-formed and flat on top. Using that definition, we've seen some "bridges" that probably should be called "arches" and vice versa. In the Natural Bridges National Monument, all of them are called "bridges."
There are no bridges in the above photo, so don't strain your eyes looking for one. This was taken at the overlook for the Kachina Bridge, and the bridge itself is out of the picture, to the right. This was just such a pretty scene I couldn't leave it out.
