GALLERY: Natural Stone Bridge and Caves

Yesterday we spent the day in upstate New York hiking around a natural stone bridge and a few caves. Originally named Ponte De Dios, or “The Bridge of God” by early explorers, the main attraction is a cave with what cavers have named the largest entrance in the eastern United States. Hiking trails wrap around and briefly into caves, so while some athletic ability is required to see all the sights, the path was not too difficult to navigate in the dry conditions. A couple times we sat in the caves, cooling off as we watched streams flow around the stones and emit a mist as the vapor hit the warm air near the entrance of the cave. If you’re planning a trip to the Adirondacks, I would definitely recommend checking out the trail. The ticket booth doesn’t offer a AAA discount (we tried,) but they do have an online coupon.
