Trip Day Twenty-seven: Saturday, July 8, 2000

Arches and ampitheaters seem to be a dominate theme in the rock formations of Utah. Given enough time, amphitheaters become arches, then eventually the top erodes away and they fall down. This one seems to have a way to go before that happens. I don't think we'll ever see it happen.
