Natural Bridge, VA

image Just got back from a 2-night camping trip to Natural Bridge, VA.  A National Historical Landmark, and can you believe we forgot our camera!  Fortunately, photos of this amazing rock structure abound.  At dusk, the park puts on a light display choreographed to the “Story of Creation” and ancient hymns.  It’s rather curious considering it was all about “millions and millions of years ago” earlier in the day.

Our family enjoyed a few days together away from phones, computers and the demands of preparing to return to Papua New Guinea.  Swimming…hiking…hotdogs…swings and slides…the deepest cavern on the east coast…and my favorite—the campfire.  There’s something therapeutic about sitting around a fire sharing stories…or maybe it’s just the marshmallows.
