A pic to show how all this Moab rock coolenss happens-
Water seeps through the upper layers (over 10's of years) until it hits a harder layer and works its way horizontally, eroding and undercutting (for those into "survival stuff"- the water is very clean to drink

More SR 128

128 from one of the rafting tour pull outs
