Natural Bridge Adventures

I lived in Virginia for the past 4 years while attending James Madison University. Whenever I left Harrisonburg I would see signs for the “Natural Bridge”. It was a bit of a drive from my house, but I was determined to get there eventually ! Yesterday my boyfriend Don and I were driving back from a wedding in NC. About 5 hours into our drive we began to see billboards for The Natural Bridge. We joked, “hey, maybe we should stop and see the Natural Bridge !” Within 30 seconds the jokes became 100% serious and we got off the highway to head for the Natural Bridge !!! I was so incredibly excited and even more excited when we got a student discount (score).

Don and I walked around for about an hour enjoying the sights and each other’s company. Here are just a few photos I snapped during our trek through the Natural Bridge grounds.
