It was 9.38 a.m. when we started from home and the odometer showed 48175.
It was once owned by Thomas Jefferson and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is 215 feet tall and is a limestone gorge carved out by Cedar Creek, which still exists far below.
Below, if you enlarge the photo, you can read about the early settlers. It makes for a very interesting read.

There was the occasional graffiti and I preferred looking at the natural patterns on the walls.
It was very pleasant walking along the creek, and we sat down to watch the fish. I overheard one of the Park Rangers say that they refilled the creek with them occasionally.
And this one I am not sure about. Any guesses?
One last photo of a lady trying to take a photo of her dog. He was more interested in what was going in the other direction.
We stayed the night in Stuart, Virginia, at a neat little hotel but I will concentrate on places we visited first and then maybe do a post later on any interesting hotels we enjoyed.
