Day 5– Tucki Mountain’s New Natural Bridge

Today we did another epic hike of 15+ miles RT. And I’m feeling it tonight. We did an incredible hike out to Cottonball Marsh Canyon and then the side canyon which leads to the newly discovered natural bridge on Tucki Mountain. We had to overcome two major dry falls in the canyon in order to reach the spectacular new natural bridge. A name for this bridge will be assigned in the next week or so and will be published in my upcoming report, along with the info on who discovered it and more details. Thanks to Kauri for scouting out the first of the two bypasses on her earlier trip, thus paving the way for my group to be successful. This was a very beautiful canyon from beginning to end.
