Red River Gorge, KY

Sandstone carved by water and wind over time forming rock bridges (also called natural bridges) and beautiful arches.

Rock Bridge
All these bridges are a type of rock bridge or natural bridge but this is named Rock Bridge because this is the only real bridge over a river.

Angel Window

One of the many rock houses in the area (the process before rock bridges are formed). You can see black marks from cooking smoke in some of them when the Indians used to live there.  This rock house is behind Angel Window. If I were Simba in Lion King, this would be my home, overlooking my valley.
