This week I had the opportunity to go hiking at Natural Bridges near Angel’s camp. I have been on more hikes, camping trips, nature excursions in my lifetime than I care to count but this one in particular was definitely a new favorite of mine. It was not a difficult hike physically and fairly short in length but the river and cavern that the river ran through it were spectacular. The river ran through a cavern that was probably 300 yards in length and was in most places at least 30-40 feet wide. Needless to say the water was FREEZING! That being said I have never experienced swimming in a river through a cavern in such beautiful terrain, I was blown away. Inside the cavern there were incredible rock formations because of the constant water dripping and erosion of the river. Some of the walls had great handle holds which allowed us to scale and climb up on the walls which was also a brand new experience to me. Even though the actually hiking part of the excursion took about 45-60 minutes, we spent about 3 hours just exploring and enjoying the cavern and the river. I seriously hope I get to re-visit this amazing place in the future at some point. Check out the videos and photos! Remember to wear sunscreen though! I got burned!!
