Last weekend we went away for Jason’s master’s degree graduation. We decided to leave a day early and see some sights. We went to Natural Bridge, VA and visited the attractions there.
We stayed in the Natural Bridge hotel. It is a gorgeous building complete with balconies, fireplaces, pillars, and a colonial dining room.
One of the attractions was a butterfly house. It was small and there weren’t very many varieties of butterflies, but the ones that were there were fun to photograph.
Along the walkway down towards the natural bridge, there are several waterfalls. This one begged me to take its picture as it rushed along.
This 600 year old tree bears its age with dignity, its gnarly roots showing years of strength.
It amazes me how plants can thrive in little clefts of rock like this!
The natural bridge was breathtaking. Pictures do not do it justice. I had seen many pictures of it, but the pictures don’t show the magnificent splendor that God created!
I’ve been fascinated with sun rays lately, and managed to capture them in this photo.
This is one of my favorite photos of the day. It shows Jason’s analytical personality quite well.
And last but not least, we went down into the caverns. They were beautiful as well.
