Betsy and I plan most of our hikes to visit waterfalls, but we occasionally find a bonus attraction.  This was the case in September, 2006, when we hiked to Yahoo Falls in Kentucky.  We were hiking a loop trail, and after seeing the falls we came to a junction with a trail leading to a natural bridge.

It was a pretty day, so we hiked the extra mile to see the natural bridge.  It was low, but it definitely was a bridge.  It was also fairly wide.

I scrambled under the bridge and got this picture of of the underside.  I had to use a flash to get any thing at all.

I went through the smaller (upper) opening and then shot through the bridge to get this picture.  You can see the trail leading to the bridge.  This was a nice bonus to our waterfall visit.

    My God, George. You and Betsy sure are fit. That is a hell of a walk to have done.
    Maybe you, two, should set yourselves up as fitness trainers for the “senior brigade”???
    You’d have a field day “down under” especially in Tasmania, the Blue Mountains and the Snowy Mountains.
    Might even get shots of the “Bogong Moths” – sorry, couldn’t help that, but you do know what they are – ha ha.

    Cheers
    Colin
