TONTO NATURAL BRIDGE

5.05.2014

When Shawn and I took our trip to Fossil Creek we passed the exit Tonto Natural Bridge and it sparked my interest ever since.  I planned a day trip and invited Shawn’s family to come along.  Originally our plan was to go last weekend but the weather forced us to reschedule.  I’m fortunate we were all able to get our schedules together to make the trip so awesome!  We started our day by meeting at The Coffee Shop.  It was delicious as always.  Then we were on our way…
But first a car selfie…

The drive was beautiful.  We were surprised how green nature looked as it seems we didn’t get much rain.  Then again I think we Arizonians say that every year.

This was taken under the bridge looking up.  There was a small stream of water that fell from the top.  As the wind shifted it would come down on us like rain.  It was absolutely beautiful under the bridge.  So peaceful and the breeze was heavenly.

The hike back up was more difficult than going down.  It was a workout for sure.  We decided to head to another trail to the waterfall.  I’m not sure if the path is always blocked but it didn’t really seem to be much of a “waterfall”.  None the less it was awesome and can’t believe its in Arizona.

After that short hike we decided to head to lunch at THAT Brewery.  This was our second time going.

After lunch the girls went outside to play and get some sunshine.

Peaceful drive home. 
We had such a great day!  Can’t wait until the next place we visit in this Amazing state.
