PAGE, Ariz. -- Rainbow Bridge National Monument is reopening Friday, more than two weeks after storms washed out a trail next to Lake Powell.

The monument in far southern Utah lies within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which stretches into parts of northern Arizona.

Heavy rain had wiped out 150 feet of trail between the lake dock and the first shade structure. Crews have completed a temporary trail, cleaned up debris and repaired docks.

The National Park Service said the temporary trail runs through a portion of a creek bed, so visitors should be aware of the potential for flash floods.
