1909 · Rainbow Bridge is Discovered

Age 1

Until 1909, this natural wonder was not known to the outside world. Two separate exploration parties – one headed by University of Utah Dean Byron Cummings, and another by government surveyor, W.B. Douglass – began searching for the legendary span. Eventually, they combined efforts. Paiute guides Nasja Begay and Jim Mike led an exploration party in the south east corner of Utah, along with trader and explorer John Wetherill. Coming down what is now Bridge Canyon, the party saw Rainbow Bridge for the first time. The next year, President Taft proclaimed the newly found structure a National Monument. Theodore Roosevelt and Zane Grey were among the first visitors to see the Monument. The trail they took is no longer passable for horses but is now a trailhead for hikers that want to visit the bridge. Rainbow Bridge receives thousands of visitors each year but, the National Park Service asks visitors to be respectful of its significance to the people who have long held Rainbow Bridge sacred.
