Future Arches

Arches Fins

A shot out past the horn on one of the fins with some people on top for scale.  I don’t remember the geological details, but these fins come into existence when the softer rock erodes from between them and then arches come into existence when there happens to be softer rock lower in a fin that erodes leaving the arch.

I’m not a fan of heights, and even though there’s literally room to fall over and not slide off the edge out there, that was not a place I was going.

* Yes, this camera records three decimal palaces.  From this we can conclude one of two things:  My $200 camera has focal length detection down to 1/65535th of it’s range, or someone at Canon did not have Mr. Paladino teach them all about significant digits.  My money’s on the latter.
