Rock Bridge Memorial State Park

Today we visited our first so called cave!  It is called Rock Bridge Memorial State Park.  The rock bridge was created by the collapse of a section of a cave which resulted in a small arch of rock being left to form a natural bridge over the creek.

Enjoy some of the beautiful pictures
