What's New on the NABS website
December 12: More Giant Arches — both confirmed and unconfirmed. As reported in SPAN Winter 2014, the "Big 14" becomes the "Big 16" as two more arches in China have been measured by Gunter Welz at over 200 feet. Zhijin Natural Bridge is over 300 feet! Yunmentum Natural Bridge is over 200 feet. In addition, The Great Arch of Getu is possibly over 200 feet. There is also a mystery arch in Namibia reported to be over 200 feet, but we are skeptical — and we haven't been able to find it (any help would be appreciated).

November 18: Long-time NABS member Robert Fagley, 92, passed away November 3, 2013, at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In Bob's honor, his work has been preserved as a Gallery section of the NABS website:
