Collapsed arch

Looks like his archive links aren't there yet, so this was originally posted on Robert Wills Blog on Thursday, January 3, 2012: A Rockslide in Action: an arch falls into the sea, in which Robert Wills captures a sequence of photos of a collapse of an arch near Tennessee Beach, in southern Marin County.

Same content mirrored at Tom Stienstra's SFGate.com blog: Stunning Marin beach landslide caught on camera (two galleries)

Dan--have you hiked to that area? I don't believe that I ever did.

Yep, I've been out to Tennessee beach a couple of times. It's a two mile or so flat hike.

Do you remember that arch from your hikes?

Not particularly. The first pictures I saw of it reminded me of an arch down off Fort Cronkhite. And it's been long enough since I've been out to Tennessee beach that that could have formed and fallen in the intervening time.

Weirdest visit to Tennessee beach? We were hiking Hill 88, and the fog was thick enough that on the way back down we took a wrong turn and ended up in Tennessee Valley rather than back down by Fort Cronkhite. And then the rain came. That was a miserable day...
