Natural Bridge Virginia

During our ride down the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway we stopped to visit the Natural Bridge in Virginia. We took the opportunity to take some photos also inside their gift shop.

Natural Bridge was one of the wonders of the new world that Europeans visited during the 18th and 19th centuries.[citation needed] Vacationing guests from all over the world took day trips from Natural Bridge on horseback or horse drawn carriages to explore the countryside. In 1833, a new owner erected the Forest Inn to accommodate the increasing number of people

The Natural Bridge was a sacred site of the Native American Monacan tribe, who believed it to be the site of a major victory over pursuing Powhatans centuries before the arrival of whites in Virginia.[
