The 4Bs Senior Adults, First Baptist Church, 32 East Lexington Ave., boarded the church bus Thursday, Oct. 2, bound for Stanton, county seat of Powell County and Natural Bridge State Resort Park, also in Powell County.
Powell County was formed in 1852. It is located in the Eastern Coalfield region of the state and offers unique experiences for its visitors. The group lunched at Hood's Pizza & More, 130 Washington St., in Stanton; the diverse menu provided something for everyone.
After a leisurely time of food and fellowship, everyone was ready for the beautiful drive to the park. Located in the midst of the Daniel Boone National Forest, near the Red River Gorge Geological Area, the 2,200 acre Natural Bridge State Resort Park is home to the great natural sandstone arch, which is 65 feet tall and 78 feet long. This arch stands like a sentinel welcoming visitors to the park's kaleidoscope of spectacular seasonal beauties.
