This natural gorge has interesting rock formations, potholes and pools to photograph. The foot bridge in the above image crosses the Cockermouth River and offers a great view into the rocky gorge. People swim here, but I have never seen anyone doing it. I also am unsure if swimming is permitted in this area.

Sculptured Rocks Natural Area has many photographic possibilities, and I always enjoy exploring the potholes and rock formations. Make sure you bring your tripod and plan on spending a few hours photographing the area. The rock formations will be of interest to abstract photographers. Be careful though, the rocks can be slippery.
