The “swastika bridge” stands near the end of the mighty Colorado River, once providing access to the Laguna Dam. The bridge was completed in 1909, long before Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror. Some might not know that the swastika is actually a religious symbol of divinity in some eastern religions.

To learn more about the swastika bridge, read Walter Smoter Frank‘s excellent article which has to be the oldest and most thorough history on the web. There is also great information about the swastika bridge and the Laguna Dam district on the National Park Service’s official website.
