The Natural Bridge

Today we went for a long drive and ended up at the Natural Bridge.


From the Arkansas State Parks Website:

Hidden away in the scenic beauty of the Ozarks, this 100-ft. sandstone formation was millions of years in the making. The stone archway was actually used as a bridge during pioneer days. Facilities include a log cabin museum and gift shop.


It really was fun... I adore that area! Everytime I drive up there I hit Damascus and feel this huge sense of relief and happiness...Someday I want a little cabin somewhere between Damascus and Leslie.

We've driven past the entrance to the bridge at least a half dozen times and never pulled in...I'm so glad that we finally did! The drive down the hill was incredibly steep with several very sharp curves and made me thankful that we just had the car in the shop!
