The Hite Crossing Bridge is an arch bridge that carries Utah State Route 95 across the Colorado River northwest of Blanding, Utah, United States.
This photo is from a trip I did with @baggersmag. We rode from LA to Sturgis. It was the hardest trip I've ever done. It wasn't the hardest because we had to put on a billion miles a day to get there in time. It wasn't the hardest because we got caught in a 60 mile an hour hailstorm and our bikes kept on getting blown over on the side of the road. It wasn't the hardest because a co-worker talked me into trying to go into the Hell's Angels clubhouse with my camera hanging around my neck. It was the hardest because a friend of ours crashed and lost his entire left arm. The details are a story for another time.
We crossed the Hite Crossing Bridge a day before the accident. Take a drive from Blanding along Utah's SR-95, and you'll witness some of Utah's most beautiful, and vast, scenery. The red rock of the desert contrasts with the blue sky above, and on a sunny day, this drive is incredibly scenic.
As you approach the Colorado River, you'll see just one man-made landmark in this seemingly endless wilderness. The Hite Crossing Bridge.
