in the midwest, you might want to head to natural bridge state park in kentucky.
my sister is a rock climber, and has come here for years.
she got married this weekend, and had her wedding in the park. it's called natural bridge for a reason.
you can hike for an hour or two and arrive at this bridge, or you can take the direct route - steps! or for those with a relative who needs assistance, they even have a sky lift.
once you are under the bridge, it's impressive. but you can climb it, too.
we took the hard way.
there is an easier way, too, and
the view is lovely.
no railings, though, so be careful.
joy to you.
