Two months ago I camped at Canyonlands National Park with my two youngest offspring (I have three). We hiked over 20 miles in the desert heat of Arches National Park and saw most of the really great arches there. That was the best time I’ve ever had at my favorite place on Earth, Arches. One arch we visited was Wall Arch, the 12th biggest arch in Arches at 71 feet wide by 33 feet high.
This week something historic happened which may not happen for tens of thousands of years or more: Wall Arch collapsed.
Wall Arch before and after the collapse
I’m very sad about the collapse yet excited to have been around during a major geologic event in Arches’ history.
Here is a pic of the kids two months ago under Wall arch. I’m glad we weren’t more of a part of history than this.
Got out just in time!?
When you consider how small of an amount of time two months is in geologic time, we barely escaped the Wall Arch collapse with our lives.
A quick post from road on the HOG world tour
Greetings from Las Vegas. Just played Reflection Bay today. The TPC of Vegas is tomorrow and then I’ll be back to HOG world headquarters for more regular golf blogging.
Natalie Gulbis’ House
I saw Natalie Gulbis’ house today. I knocked on her door to ask her face to face why she hasn’t returned my phone calls. Nobody home.
105 in the shade
It is hot here.
Greg Norman is an amazing business man. I read his book and oddly enough I met Greg the day after I finished it!
Greg and I have a lot in common. We’re both damn handsome. We both have amazing golf swings. We both play MacGregor gear, and we have similar marital, uh, “experiences.”
Greg’s ex-wife received $103 million of Norman’s assets in the divorce settlement. Norman’s net worth is roughly $500 million. Greg’s son and daughter will receive all of his golf trophies and at least $100 million between them when he dies.
I’m golf blogging from my favorite restaurant, sipping a refreshing “beverage” and listening to a jazz piano player playing “Mona Lisa.” My buddy who owns the place just showed me his knee, which he messed up last week during our weekly golf competition. Its bad. He’s limping and can’t lift his leg up without the help of his arm. It isn’t looking like he’ll be attempting to win back the $8.00 I acquired from him last week any time soon. I suggested that my pal look up Dr. Rosenberg up in Park City, Tiger Woods’ knee doctor.
My Tuesday men’s league pal hurt his back. This guy is a super die hard. For him to tell me he can’t play means he is in a ton of pain.
Looks like the world of my golf buddies is crumbling around me. I better watch my step, not lift anything heavy, and definitely no quick movements.
