Wall Arch -- gone!

Long the star of Devils Garden Trail, the Wall Arch was one of the most photographed sights in Arches National Park, five miles north of Moab, Utah.

It fell down a week ago due to gravity and erosion, says the AP. The arch had measured about 33 feet tall and 71 feet across and had been made of thin, vertical sandstone fins.

Luckily, there are still about 2,000 other arches intact, including Delicate Arch
