Photos: Lees Ferry and Navajo Bridge, Arizona, December 2019

This page features photos of the Colorado River and Paria River at Lees Ferry, as well as nearby Navajo Bridge and Marble Canyon in Northern Arizona.

Lees Ferry marks the boundary between the Upper Basin and Lower Basin in the Colorado River Compact of 1922 and is the site of critical stream gauge that measures the river’s flow.

The photos of Navajo Bridge, which crosses Marble Canyon 470 feet above the Colorado River, were taken from an older, parallel bridge that now offers pedestrian access.
