Grandson Seth is visiting with us for two weeks. We took him to Natural Bridge Va to see the bridge. 20 stories of solid rock, really amazing. The wax museum we took in also. Natural bridge was formed by a cavern collapse which left the span we see here today.
Natural Bridge surveyed by George Washington in 1750 - his initials are carved on the wall of the bridge.
Thomas Jefferson purchased 157 acres including bridge in 1774 from King George 111 for 20 shillings. Still remains privately owned.
It is designated a national historic landmark.
Seth took this photo of us at the entrance to Bridge as we were getting ready for his picture.

What a beauty
the wall of rock looks purple
nice comfortable area for our iced coffee and Seth's soda and snack
such a pretty walk, even though the day was hot, these shady areas with breeze was comfortable
yes, the little darling had to see how the fence was constructed and pulled one out.
we asked him to move before the whole thing fell
If you click on picture, the sparkle in his eyes can be seen. Such a darling.
