Natural Bridge is misnamed; this "bridge" is technically an arch. Natural bridges are carved by rushing streams, whereas subtler forms of weather have sculpted this opening.

Natural Bridge appears solid, enduring. Though weather is constantly chipping away at the opening, the stone arch may last hundreds or thousands of years. In this case, appearance gives no clue to longevity.
