Arch Hunters

Something we are adding this year, which was a recommendation to us by Todd Fife, was to document the history of arch hunting in Kentucky. Specifically the arch hunters that have been tromping through the forest and mountains of Kentucky searching for and documenting the natural wonders that they came across.  Several of the forefathers of arch hunting started out in Kentucky, before moving out West and documenting the arches of Utah and beyond.  

One of the first arch hunters was Bob Vreeland.  He has two unpublished volumes on Kentucky arches.  He listed many of the now well known arches of Kentucky, in his first volume.  

Read on about Bob Vreeland here.

Here is the cover of Bob's first volume of 25.
