A few days ago we took a trip to Natural Tunnel State Park in Virginia. The park is centered on the Natural Tunnel, which is a massive naturally formed cave that is so large it is used as a railroad tunnel. The railroad tracks are still activate and a train passed through as we were first walking down the mountain. Natural Tunnel State Park was created in 1967 and opened to the public in 1971, but the natural tunnel has been a Virginian tourist attraction for more than a century.
Daniel Boone is believed to have been the first European to see it in the 18th century. The 41st United States Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan dubbed it the "Eighth Wonder of the World".
As impressive as all that is, what stood out to me was the story surrounding the highest peak above the tunnel. The story of forbidden love and death, the story known as Lover's leap.
So, I thought I would use my pictures and the videos I took at the park to tell the story of Lover's Leap. I kept the video very short, I hope you enjoy it.
I've often heard and read that Love has no boundaries. That those destined to be together will always find a way to each other. So, I guess the chances are good that the couple found each other in the afterlife. After all Virginia is for Lovers.
Again I wonder if their spirits have been seen at the park. One would think that the possibilities of someone seeing a ghost after such a tragic event are good. I do not know much about any spirit activity of this area, so I don't know if anyone has seen the couple or not.
If you know of anyone seeing the possible ghost of this young couple, let us know.
