As you can see, my California Parks progress digresses into a study of California Geology. This image is shale (still need to confirm) from the California coast of Santa Cruz in Natural Bridges.
Natural Bridges State Beach was originally named for a an outcropping of sand and rock that used to be a nice bridge out about 100 feet into the ocean. Over time, weather, and eventual collapse, there is no longer a bridge connecting land to sea. It's still called Natural Bridges today, though I've never seen it as a bridge in my lifetime and only in pictures. My dad has a picture he took of the bridge when he was 18 or so.
It's weird experiencing a place like Natural Bridges that is no longer representative of the original reason it was named. Now it's only a history and memory. C'mon people, let's do some deep thinking this lovely Thursday morning. Any places or historical landmarks you can think of that are like this?
