The history of the Yuma Crossing began at the formation of two massive granite outcroppings on the Colorado River. Thousands of years ago, prehistoric tribes, searching for a way across the mighty river, first came upon this natural crossing. Years later, Spanish explorers would rediscover the Yuma Crossing, almost 100 years before the first European settlements on America's east coast.
