The Old Cliff Dwellers Lodge (2 photos to the above right & 1 photo below) was originally built in 1925.  In 1949 the Greene family bought it and converted it into a residence and restaurant where they lived and worked until 1951 when the new Cliff Dweller Lodge was opened.

The Navajo Bridge is a steel arch bridge that carries traffic across the 700 foot deep Marble Canyon.  The old bridge on the left is now only open to foot traffic, while the newer bridge on the right carries traffic across the Colorado River.  There is no other vehicle bridge for over 500 miles downstream.
