If you haven’t been to Arches National Park in Moab, Utah I highly suggest you put it on your list. It is truly one of the most spectacular places I have been in the United States and I spent six weeks driving around the country in the summer of 2010. That said, I suggest not coming in July when the average high is 100 degrees!
So in the park there is a structure called “Balanced Rock,” which is giant boulder that seemingly defies gravity. In any event, the picture I took of it very much reminded me of the current state of the financial system. Although, of course, this rock will still be standing far after Bernanke’s ponzi party has blown itself to smithereens. Likely within 3-6 months after the U.S. Presidential election on November 6, if they can keep it going another three and a half months. Hope you enjoy the photo!
