Wall Arch, in Arches National Park, has collapsed. You can read the whole story here. It finally succumbed to gravity and erosion, as we all must do sometime. It’s a terrible loss for the world, but I’m sure Wall Arch wouldn’t want to be the cause of sadness. Wall Arch would want us to be happy and to continue to live our lives.
In honor of Wall Arch, here is a drawing I did a while back. This arch sits near Moab, Utah, which is the closest town to Arches National Park. This arch probably knew Wall Arch.
Rest in peace, Wall Arch. We will miss your shade and your undisputed arch-ness.
