Interesting trivia tidbits abound concerning the named formations in Arches. For most of the 20th century, this formation directly above my apartment was called “The Trinity.” At some point it got renamed “The Three Penguins.” Was it the NPS’s commitment to our pluralistic society? Was it the need to choose a more colorful name? I have no idea. I enjoy seeing it/them every day way up on the hill.
