Throwback Thursday: Arizona Highways, August 1959

1959_08

From the issue: “Glen Canyon Bridge, 700 feet above the Colorado River, is the highest steel arch bridge in the world. Its 1,271-foot length gracefully and spectacularly spans the Glen Canyon of the Colorado.” The bridge is still in use today as part of U.S. Route 89. Photo by Dick Carter.
