photoblog image The Tonto natural bridge.

The Tonto natural bridge.

 Here is another shot from under the arch.Believed to be the largest travertine arch in the world. The waterfall is not much at the moment, due to the drought in the South Western states.

The hollow in the middle is like an upside down granite mortar.
Frank L Croston.: It's probably something similar,but natural, Louis.
It is hard to quite appreciate just tactlessly what this is Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Tactlessly, Bill ? I assume you mean actually, ( isn't predictive text great? ) I know what you mean, I thought allied to the photo of it last week it might work.
That's a beautiful stone!
Frank L Croston.: This was the roof,Tom, ( hard to tell,I know) it was an amazing place.

Beautiful textures, Frank. I wonder what this is like in full spate?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, quite spectacular I would think, we may make another visit later in the year.
LOVE the colors in this - Like Ginnie - the colors and textures make it look like petrified wood!
