it's unnatural

Newsflash: A lot of wacky people live in Kentucky. However, we stuck around for a second day to camp at and visit Natural Bridge Park. Its claims to fame are a 20 minute sky lift ride up into the mountain and -you guessed it- a "natural bridge". You'll see what I mean in a minute.

wheeeeee it was a fun little ride

When we got to the top, we had to hike a short ways to get to the actual natural bridge. It's kinda funny that you can't really get a sense for what it is while you are on it. All you know is that you are standing on a strip of rock that is hundreds of feet in the air... with no railing. So yeah, you can get right to the edge of a cliff...

Mike braves it for a photo.

There is a sign that says to keep away from the edges because there are about FIFTY deaths each year from people being stupid. These kids almost gave me a panic attack!

That outcropping of rock beyond and to the left of them is a place you can hike to and get a great view of the bridge from farther away.

Poof! We magically appear in that spot and now what you see in the distance is the natural bridge we were just on! (In reality it was an extremely muddy mile of a hike)

A bit of a closer look... Don't get too close to the edge, people!

The end of the trip is near... At this point only one state separated us from home sweet home. For those who failed geography I'll give you a hint: It's round on the sides and high in the middle!
