The two RV Gypsies hiked to the Natural Arch
July 8, 2011
Below: One of Kentucky’s largest sandstone arches, plus attractive streams and woodlands. It is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest in McCreary County, Kentucky.
Just as the two RV Gypsies parked in the parking lot, it started to rain. So they quickly put on rain ponchos and continued on their way.

Lee Duquette and his grandson Alex Jones read the posted trail map and then everyone headed out down the trail. The rain quickly became only a drizzle.

The two RV Gypsies and their grandson continued on the hike. The trail made a loop through the arch and along the area’s perimeter on a series of paths and forest roads left over from the days when homesteaders farmed the stream bottoms. Even if there were no arch, it would be a walk well worth taking, through a lovely forest and along several attractive streams.

By now the rain had stopped, so good-bye ponchos. Lee photographed Alex as he walked under the arch..

Looking high up at the side of the Natural Arch, the attached formation looked like a sea horse - check the zoomed in view and see if you agree.

On the way back to the RV, there was a Texaco sign in the middle of a grassy field.
