Photo of the arch taken shortly after the initial camp put-in flight (sorry, no new photos yet). The arch experienced heavy drifting over the winter. The section of arch that you can see (left side of photo) is the the drilling arch, the taller of the two arches. The core handling arch is on the right and is completely buried. Credit: RPSC
