Do you still remember

the composition of the rock, or was it too
frosted over to distinguish? I was told that
"dolomite" is too hard to be easily eroded
into arches. Is this limestone, maybe???

Re: Do you still remember

Larry, I really don't recall what kind of rock it was composed of. Limestone may be a good guess though. Cheers.
