Stateline Arches . . .

A couple of weeks ago, Dudeboy and I joined Uncle Vic and a few friends on a trip to see some natural arches along the border in the western sections of Kentucky and Tennessee.  It took us about a year to gain permission to visit these features . . . none of which were spectacular, but taken as a whole, they are pretty interesting geologically.
 Under a boulder wedge . . .

 There were many, many small passages to crawl through.

This arch, and the openings in the above photos, are all part of the same complex.  Much of it is basically a collapsed cave system.

 It might be a bit hard to decipher in the above photo, but Dudeboy is standing on an arch.

Here is the same arch, but from below looking up at Dudeboy.

The last, and most significant arch we visited.
