Photographer's Note

This was our first glimpse of the Natural Bridge, a drawing of which we had seen at Lynchburg Museum. Here is what Wikipedia says about this formation:

Natural Bridge is a geological formation in Rockbridge County, Virginia, comprising a 215-foot-high (66 m) natural arch with a span of 90 feet (27 m). It is situated within a gorge carved from the surrounding mountainous limestone terrain by Cedar Creek, a small tributary of the James River. Consisting of horizontal limestone strata, Natural Bridge is the remains of the roof of a cave or tunnel through which the Cedar Creek once flowed.

Natural Bridge has been designated a Virginia Historic Landmark and a National Historic Landmark. Since 2016, the bridge and its surroundings have been managed by the Commonwealth of Virginia as Natural Bridge State Park.

The workshop contains a photo of the information sign at the beginning of Cedar Creek Trail, which goes underneath the Bridge and follows the creek all the way to Lace Falls.
