Greetings Arch is Arch Wednesday! (Issue #27) 
Worldwide arch count: 
6126; Net Change: +6; Fallen: 25

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.

Natural Bridges National Monument/White Canyon Project (Utah, USA) 
We are continuing to enter and update arch data in these areas in anticipation of the Natural Arch and Bridge Society's (NABS) Spring 2013 Arch Rally. Search US>UT>San Juan>location keywords "Natural Bridges" or "White Cyn."
We received one more arch report for this area, courtesy of Virginia Allen, which was entered as UT-936. This project will not be updated again until after the NABS rally, when we'll have lots of newer and better information from the daily NABS trips.

Largest Arches Inventory Project (LAIP): Focusing on updates for the largest arches in the world, defined in the World Arch Database as arches having a superior Greater Arch Dimension (or GAD), this project will be ongoing over the next several months.
There are no new entries or updates for the LAIP this week.

California Coast Project
New entries:
Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto the beach, Nicholus Terzakis has reported even more arches! CA-205, CA-215 and Chimney Rock (Marin County); Pyramid Rock (Mendocino County); CA-218, 237, 275, 276, 277 and San Simeon Arch (San Luis Obispo County). This is a good thing because sea arches fall at an alarming rate!

Updates (also courtesy of Nicholus Terzakis):  Some day we'll get all of this sorted out, but we keep finding duplicate entries (which have been fixed); for others, we are not sure if there are duplicate entries or not, so we have indicated same in our data. Some of these problems may be sorted out by the folks attending the NABS 2013 Fall Rally on the CA Coast.
Blowhole Arch, Russian Gulch State Park: coordinates
General Notes: Many of the CA coastal arches were found to be on private property and thus hard to visit. However, the NABS 2013 Fall Rally may offer opportunities to visit some of these arches if the organizers of the event can obtain permission from the land owners. All offshore rocks are owned by the US Bureau of Land Management as part of the California Coastal National Monument. So, even though the (onshore) lands from which these arches can be viewed are privately owned, they could be viewed from a boat instead without incurring a trespass in most cases.

Happy Arch Hunting!
yours truly,
Stone Canyon
