An unnamed waterfall natural bridge in Colorado National Monument, Colorado

NABSQNO 12S-697340-4324610. This small but very interesting natural arch is a waterfall natural bridge eroded through stacked bedding planes of Entrada sandstone with varying degrees of hardness. It is located above Ute Canyon opposite from Suction Point in Colorado National Monument, Mesa County, Colorado. There are no maintained trails to the arch. As of this writing, August 2009, this feature is a clustering of four natural arches. However, one of these openings is a very recent development in the feature's evolution. Indeed, the smallest opening is only two to three years old. The series of three photos below is only the second known set of photographs to capture the formation of a natural arch, albeit a rather small one.
