In fact, the bridge is so iconic that it’s pictured on the state’s commemorative quarter. For a picture-perfect spot to capture an image of this impressive structure and the beautiful fall foliage that flanks it, visit the Canyon Rim Visitor Center. For views from the gorge floor looking up at the bridge, take the winding Fayette Station Road that dates back 100 years.
