Today is Arch Wednesday!
Each week we update the World Arch Database with newly reported arches as well as more acccurate data and/or photos for existing arch entries.
Wednesday, we send you a list of these updated arch entries with a
summary of what has changed. Typically our weekly
updates will focus on a certain area, state or country, although we
may jump around the world at times!
This week's arches:
Note: We're doing a bit of re-structuring of our database. These entries may not appear online for a few days.

Rally in New Mexico and Arizona.
