or maybe they did it because they were worried that it might fall on some innocent children. It was a public service.
 
In all seriousness... I've often wondered how long that rock has got left before it falls? Any geologist types able to offer up a guess?!
 
Saw that on Flickr, Interesting graphics choice.

Why not choose another skyline?
 
I saw one of these RV's on the interstate today and was trying to picture where in Arches it was. Now I know!
 
No no......its the fat, boy scout leader's work again. Just a before and after photo.
