Parents and Teachers: Please note we are making some internal changes to the site. As a result, the Great American Multiplication Challenge, Spellerz!, Burnside's Billions and couple of other games will not show statistics or return save codes for the next few days. They will be playable, but no data will be saved. They should be fully functional again by the end of the week. As always, please support this site by following me on FACEBOOK or TWITTER.

Arches

   
 
 
 

Arches National Park, located in eastern Utah, features more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including Delicate Arch, which is featured on the Utah license plate. The olympic torch even passed through Delicate Arch in 2002. The famous arches were formed from a sandstone layer deposited by an ancient sea. Over time, the salt underneath the sandstone forced it to rise and crack. The rising sandstone was exposed to wind, precipitation and erosion, which resulted in the formation of the arches.
