  • Short Summary

    Rickety suspension bridge allows men and horses to make their way across the Colorado River.

  • Description

    "The rugged and mountainous country of the Colorado Canyon makes travelling a hazardous business..." High angle shot of pack horses making their way down a steep canyon. M/S of man riding horse and leading another - they are progressing along a narrow track on a steep mountainside. L/S of the canyon showing horses making their way down.

    "....and necessitated the construction of a wonderful bridge suspended between the sheer cliffs....500 feet above the Colorado River." Low angle of the rickety looking bridge. L/S of horses making their way across the suspension bridge. "Not more than one man and one animal are allowed to cross at the one time." (No wonder!) Unusual high angle shot showing a horse and rider progressing across the bridge. Shot from behind as the horse moves away from the camera. Shot through netting of the river below.
