Greetings Arch is Arch Wednesday! (Issue #16) 
Worldwide arch count: 
6063 (Net Change: -6)

V12-24, AZ (Robert Moore)

Each week we update the World Arch Database (WAD) with newly reported arches as well as more accurate data and/or photos for existing arch entries. Each Wednesday (day may vary), we send you a list of the updated arch entries with a summary of what has changed.

Arizona: Robert Moore, a former President of NABS, was kind enough to send us photos of arches in the Arizona desert which we were missing. Some of these are very remote, including those within the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge in SW Arizona. At least one of these photos is of an arch which was newly entered into the WAD during our GNIS project. Search US>AZ> location keywords "Eagletail", "Castle Dome", "Kofa" and "Phoenix."

California Coast: Nicholas Terzakis provided more information on California Coastal arches. Some of our entries were duplicates, hence the negative change in the worldwide arch count. He also provided more photos and better directions for some of them.
We arch hunters are very concerned about the recent parade of huge storms hitting the California Coast, because we fear we might lose a few arches! We'll see...
New arch count by county (coastal sea arches only, including fallen ones).
Del Norte - 5
Humboldt - 2
Los Angeles - 4
Marin - 34
Mendocino - still the winner with 77, but Mendocino County is being hardest hit by the storms of any coastal county!
Monterey - 12
Orange - 7
San Diego - 5
San Francisco - 5
San Luis Obispo - 12
San Mateo - 8
Santa Barbara - 4
Sant Cruz - 15
Sonoma - 10
Ventura - 3
TOTAL: 203. HOWEVER, STAY TUNED, because CA Coastal trekker Ted Dahlmann is going to be sending us info on an additional 30+ arches!

ARCH HUNTER ALERT: We still need more photographs of California Coastal arches, as we're still missing quite a few. If you have any arch photos for the missing ones, or if you think you have a better photo than we have in the WAD, please send them to Thank you! 

Happy Arch Hunting!
yours truly,
Stone Canyon
