Is it An Arch Or Is It A Rock House?

Whittleton's Arch

Red River Gorge Geological Area

Daniel Boone National Forest

Kentucky

 

There are two ways to look at this unique RRG geological feature: a) a small arch or b) one good sized rock house. From a rock house perspective it's probably one of the larger ones in the area and quite impressive as it continues out of sight behind the boulder to the right. A wet weather falls is hidden behind the boulder as well and unfortunately thanks to ice I wasn't able to explore angles to the right either. From the arch perspective, it's cute but in itself not impressive. The trail from KY 15 is and easy one, and there are 3 small falls along/near the trail.
