in the shadow of natural bridge
cool water flows underneath stone an archway created by the falling of weakened shelves of ceiling rock
beauty born in the chaos of destruction still standing as a monument to the power of nature
reminding us of the hidden flaws in strength persistence can be the undoing of the hearts of mountains ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
A view of the natural stone arch carved out by an ancient river in Natural Bridge State Park, Virginia. The remaining limestone dates to the Ordovician geologic period of approximately 470 million years ago. Cedar Creek, a tributary of the James River, runs through the arch today. The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thomas Jefferson once owned the land where the park is located, and it has been speculated that George Washington may have surveyed the area before that.Painted in digital oils from a 2006 photograph released to Wikimedia Commons by Stephen Kellam.
