Photos on Friday: The Natural Bridge

This trip is a bit off the beaten path from DC and Northern Virginia, but it is too beautiful of a place not to write about. 

Ever since I've moved to Virginia (close to 10 years now), I've always wanted to travel downstate to visit The Natural Bridge. Finally, this month the opportunity arose and we made a stop to see the beautiful handiwork of Mother Nature during our travel downstate. We only were able to stay a couple of hours, but it was well worth it.

The Natural Bridge, Virginia
Visitors walk underneath the Natural Bridge. There is an active road that crosses the top, but driving over it, you'd never know what was below.

Natural Bridge in Virginia - The Lost River
This is the Lost River, which is located on a pathway beyond the Natural Bridge. The source of this water is unknown. 
The Natural Bridge can make a good day (or more likely better as) an overnight trip. There is also plenty to see and do along I-81 if you're looking to make a weekend out of it. You'll pass towns, such as Staunton and Strasburg, and Charlottesville or Luray Caverns aren't too far out of the way, to name a few ideas.
