    Well it looks like there is now one less photo opportunity in Arches National Park....

    Gosh, maybe some 40 years from now the pictures won't be as cliched anymore?

    The third (on the right) picture from this trio is of the sole remaining arch from the famous 'Churva' synagogue in the Old City of Jerusalem. The synagogue was destroyed by the Jordanian's during the War of Independance. The similarity is that the arch was recently pulled down as the synagogue is now being rebuilt as an exact replica. What was once a very over photographed landmark is now rather in demand!

    Wow, that was Wall Arch which was just off the trail to Landscape Arch. Seeing how little was left of Landscape arch compared to about 20 years ago, I suspect it could fall within our lifetimes too...
