Greetings Arch Hunters!
Today is Arch Wednesday! (OK, it's Friday...but we're confident it was worth your wait!)
Each week we update the World Arch Database (WAD) 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 updates (all provided by Tom Van Bebber and Cindy Bell):
Previously undocumented arches (search on the name or the number in the WAD):
Los Volcanes Arch: In Petroglyph Nat'l. Monument, W of Albuquerque, NM
UT-920 and UT-922: We keep finding more undocumented arches in this area E of Bluff, UT
Capitol Reef National Park, UT, USA: UT-921 - an arch found on the NABS rally in 2009; Deceptive Arch - this one eluded arch hunters for years - some walked right by it!
Canyonlands National Park, UT, USA, Needles District, Lavender, Davis
and Horse Cyns: Grand Ballroom Arches; Horton Arch; UT-907 - a real beauty - all of these three on E rim of Horse Cyn; Upper Lavender Arch -
this one's also a real beauty, and one that numerous arch
hunters have missed because they did not explore far enough up the
canyon (pictured above); Double Potholes; UT-923; UT-924; UT-925 - this
one was photographed from bottom of Lavender cyn, but has great
photographic potential and should be visited from above; Shadow Box Arch - this one is also in upper Lavender Cyn and was missed for many years.
Dinosaur National Monument: Split Mountain Arch - this
is a fantastic waterfall bridge! However, I was not able to get a photo
because of a camera malfunction! Perhaps one of you arch hunters can
take one and send it to me...
Davis Triple Arches: Photo
Magic Mystery Bridges: Better coordinates and directions, which is good because this one is hard to find!
