    ARCHES NATIONAL PARK, Utah: One of the largest and most photographed stone arches in Arches National Park in the U.S. has collapsed.

    Wall Arch fell sometime late Monday or early Tuesday, though no one has reported seeing it collapse, said Paul Henderson, the park's chief of interpretation.

    He said the arch, located along the popular Devils Garden Trail, was claimed by forces that will eventually destroy other arches in the park: gravity and erosion.

    "They all let go after a while," he said Friday. Nevertheless, it was the first collapse major arch in the park since nearby Landscape Arch fell in 1991.

    It is. However, gravity is an extremely quick process. ;)

    I know Phillygirl was heading out there and immediately Clark Griswold at Stonehenge came to mind. She didn't have a rental car did she? :D
