George Washington tagged here

Here is a photo of Natural Bridge on a cold January day in 1995. U.S. Route 11 passes over the top. Around 1750, while surveying Natural Bridge, George Washington carved his initials under the bridge's arch. His initials can still be seen today.

I don't remember seeing a water mill, but there is a wax museum near the Natural Bridge Hotel. I've never been a fan of wax museums, and I'm still not.

And all this time

I thought Huck Finn lived in Missouri.

Patiently waiting.

Paw is looking for dinner. While the youngest sits and waits too!

Heck, Finn

if ever a shot begged to be accused of being staged, it has to be this one ... but am I going to make the charge ?? No sir!!

Anyway, still there, albeit without a lot of the clutter that makes the scene in '13 so interesting.
