Here’s a couple of pics of the upper foot bridge that spanned the canyon prior to the completion of the real bridge. I apologize that they are so blurry. These are stills that I pulled from a video that I have of my parents and a couple of their friends walking across this bad boy. It was originally shot in 8mm, transferred to VHS and then to a DVD. It’s a real short video but I hope to get it posted here before long. This foot bridge was pre-1960 and in place until some time after Glen Canyon Bridge was completed.
There was (and is) a story floating around that someone drove a VW Beetle over this bridge. If you’re reading this and you can confirm or deny that story, please do. Does anyone remember this foot bridge? I wish I could find more pictures of it. I you have any that you would like to see here, contact me.
I hope to get the video in the right format to post soon. Thanks for your interest in my site.
