Capitol Reef National Park Panoramic Picture Framed- Hickman Bridge Panorama
This panorama of Hickman Bridge, a huge natural bridge found in Capitol Reef National Park, was taken by James Blakeway. This natural bridge is 133 feet long and 125 feet high and was named after Joseph S. Hickman, a local school administrator and Utah legislator. Hickman was an early advocate for the area and organized the “Wayne Wonderland Club” in an effort to promote and preserve the region. The scenic trek to Hickman Bridge shares some of the ecologically-diverse landscape in the Park that is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including approximately 900 plant species and over 340 species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fish.
