Owachomo Bridge is the oldest, smallest and thinnest of the three natural bridges Owachomo means "rock mound" in Hopi and is named after the rock formation on top of the east end of the bridge. Before William Douglas gave it this name in 1908, it was called "Edwin" or "Little" Bridge. Prior to that, it was referred to as "Congressman" by miner and explorer Cass Hite.
Early in the national monument's development, a dirt road led to Owachomo Bridge from the south. It ended at the campground and ranger station directly southwest of the bridge. There were no other roads, so visitors seeking the other two bridges hiked or rode horses through the rugged canyons. They were often guided by the first "custodian" of the national monument, Ezekial "Zeke" Johnson. Today, remnants of "Zeke's trail", now on the National Register of Historic Places, can still be seen just across the canyon below Owachomo.

Dalmatian Jasper removes disillusionment, helping you to see your strengths and weaknesses more clearly and encouraging self-discovery. This allows you to encourage honesty within yourself and move forward in life and discover your true purpose for being here.
Rudraksha seeds have strong positive vibrational energies and strong spiritual and healing properties. According to the ancient Vedic scriptures, they were formed from the tears (Aksha) of Lord Shiva (Rudra). They have been used traditionally by most Eastern religions for controlling stress, inducing general healing and well-being, meditation, and engendering positive changes. Rudraksha seeds bring a deep tranquility and concentration, making them ideal for meditation. They also enhance the flow of Chi in the body and help to balance yin & yang energies.
