Natural Bridge VA
WindersRanger Tee shirts
The first stop of our 2017 summer vacation was Natural Bridge State Park in Virginia. We were not disappointed and ended up making a day out of the hiking trails in and around the Natural Bridge Park. Natural Bridge is a Geological Formation in Rockbridge County VA, consisting of a 215 foot high arch which spans approximately 90 feet. The arch still caries traffic on the old Valley Pike or modern day Route 11 which we passed over by accident when we missed the turn into the State Park.
Natural Bridge and the land surrounding it was purchased and owned by Thomas Jefferson from King George III for 20 Shillings in 1774. George Washington was also thought to have visited the Natural Bridge in his youth and was believed to have carved his initials in the wall under the bridge's arch approximately 23 feet off the ground.
When I originally planed the 2017 summer vacation I considered Natural Bridge at first but then scratched it off the list for other sight seeing stops. Later, when we first arrived in Virginia, due to our close proximity to Natural Bridge from the KOA campground we stayed in. The Natural Bridge again was found on the to do list. I am glad we did not pass this wonder of nature by and that we made time to enjoy it splendor and the history that surrounds it. If you are in the area of Rock Bridge County VA I strongly recommend you take the time to stop by and see this Wonderfull place.
