Wind-made Arches

Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, California

There are some arches to be found here and unlike those at Moab, Utah which some had help from water, these are solely created by wind-blown sand erosion.

Some day thousands of years from now this too will be an arch.

The skies are clear here at Lone Pine and I can see the mountain range on the far side of Owens Valley for the first time this week.  I hope conditions are likewise at the house in Santa Rosa.

Fascinating geology! It must be a very windy place.
