I think it is pretty obvious that the same person(s) responsible for cutting down the Honking Tree are now responsible for destroying yet another scenic North Shore landmark. What are they doing to stop this?

Are you seriously suggesting that those two are related?
Arches like this fall down naturally all the time. It just happens. Eventually, it just becomes to weak to hold the arch up, and it collapses. It happens all over the world.

I’ve been trying for three days to get myself all worked up over Mother Nature doing what she does, but it’s not working.

I am sure that if Mr Gore was asked the cause of this, he would be able to tell us why!

Something really needs to be done to stop this erosion problem. Something like this happens every year, around the world. Natural landmarks are constantly being destroyed by erosion. The national park service needs to use our tax dollars to find ways to preserve and restore these beautiful natural features which have been damaged by erosion and the elements.

I think it was destroyed by savage loons pecking away at it. They knew people liked it, that’s why they destroyed it. It’s possible Rosie O’donnell may have climbed up and sat up there.

I’m sure there is money available for a multimillion dollar study of why it fell down. Gravity being the cause is too simple.
