At the end of May, we took a day trip to the Red River Gorge area to do some hiking and geocaching.  The highlight of the area is Kentucky Natural Bridge State Park.  The natural bridge is stunning and the trail goes right across the top for some gorgeous views.

While we were there, we took a ride on the skylift.  The skylift takes you on a 1 mile ride all the way up to the top of the mountain.  From there, it’s an easy walk to the top of the arch.
