Nov 2, 2006 - Natural Bridge, VA

We heard from a fellow RVer that a stop at the Natural Bridge was well worth our time. It was good break point between campgrounds, so we stopped to check it out.

We discovered the people in this part of Virginia are very friendly and move at their own pace...probably most don't own a watch. Anyway, they are all down-to-earth country folks and are always willing to stop and...
