    Except, Jeff, don't you know you have to frame the sunset inside the arch? I've seen thousands of Delicate Arch sunset pictures, and that's just how it's done. ;)

    He definitely had wobble though.


    Never thought about that. I'd guess most other Volusia riders don't give that much thought either.
