NPM 2020 - Natural Bridge

Have you ever seen something that takes your breath away?  That makes you wonder in awe at the power of the natural world? It doesn't need to be on the scale of the Grand Canyon. It can something  as "small" as a 215-foot tall limestone gorge carved out by a creek.
Natural Bridge State Park, VA
August, 2015

In Earth science it's known as
karst topography
textbooks describe it
what it is
how it's formed
but to see the limestone gorge—
undeniable evidence of
the power of water—
is wondrous
and unfathomable
