Natural Bridge Virginia 1928 Noah Elwood and Paul H Weaver
Here, along the drive taken by the Weaver and Roehm families, Noah Elwood and his 6'3" son Paul Henry are standing by a stream at Natural Bridge Virginia. On the way from North Carolina, it appears a variety of camping places were chosen near natural history areas as well as the sites like President Wilsons Home in Staunton, Monticello and Mt Vernon. I am thinking of retracing some of this steps during an April trip to the area. My Dad, Paul H, was continued with a deep interest in Nature during his time in Minnesota, especially at Pelican Lake near Brainerd, where he retired from rural medical practice in Faribault and Rice County MN in 1976.
"Natural Bridge and Niagara Falls were the two wonders of the new world that Europeans visited during the 18th & 19th centuries. Of the two sights, Natural Bridge, without clear explanation of its formation, was the more mysterious."
