Pictures I Thought I Took

On our way home from Cincinnati, we stopped at Natural Bridge State Park. We took the sky lift up to the top. There are signs on some of the towers that say "No chair bouncing or leg swinging." Don't worry. There is a really neat looking cave at the base of the wall where the lift unloads. Mr. H asked me if it bothered me, riding up so high. I told him as long as I didn't have to move from the spot I was sitting on, I was fine. If the cable stopped working and we were within reach of a supporting tower, it wouldn't make any difference to me: I wouldn't be able to move.

It amazed me that there are no rails or signs telling you not to get close to the edge as you walk across the bridge. I walked straight down the middle. Did I mention, I don't do heights.

From the top, you don't really get the feeling that there is any space beneath you. From underneath, it is unmistakable.

Once you get under the bridge, it is a 1.25 mile hike back down to the parking lot.

This is the beginning of that hike. If there are people coming up, you'll just have to wait: it is definitely a no passing zone.

I did something to our camera while we were here, so none of my pictures exist. I thought I took a picture just like each of these (and many more), but these are borrowed these from various flicker sites. I think it shows how people think alike in that there are so many pictures of the same thing I thought noteworthy.

  1. I don't do heights or caves. You are much braver than me.
