Lower Nada Twin Arch

Lower Nada Twin Arch, Red River Gorge, Kentucky.

Located on private property just outside the Red River Gorge is a lesser-visited set of Twin Arches: The Nada Twin Arches. This unique geological feature is composed of an upper and lower (pictured here) arch. What really struck me about the lower arch was the brilliance of the reds and oranges in the rock. I was completely awestruck by it!

Note: This arch is on private property owned by Red River Gorge Getaways.

Sky View Arch - A Hidden Gem in Red River Gorge

Visitors to Kentucky's Red River Gorge know that, at this point, there are very few truly hidden spots left in the area. There are some, however, and Sky View Arch is one of them.

If I were a betting man I'd say that this arch was formed out of a rock shelter whose roof partially collapsed. I found this arch quite reminiscent of Hopewell Arch, with the exception that this one has very few signs of visitors. There is virtually no worn path out to this spot and no vandalism that I noticed. It's for these reasons that I'll be keeping the location of this one a mystery!
