Sally's Fallen
Who would have thought such a rugged looking arch would collapse when flimsy-looking arches such as Ribbon, Ring, and Landscape would continue to survive. Examination of the two photos of Sally's, front and back, before collapse does reveal a number of faults and cracks, however. Its collapse was so catastrophic it was difficult to identify the exact location of the remains. There are some clues in the rock formations above, however, to identify the original location of the arch. Even though this may not have been an important arch, its recent demise is significant because of the rarity of such an event. It is 6 miles from the end of the Potash Mine Road pavement to the former arch. The author had no difficulty recently (April 2002) reaching the location driving a low clearance sedan.
