Have you ever fancied making a country stick?

Anyone got an interest they would like to share?

Most people that know me will know that I have traveled extensively in the USA.

One day I came upon this sandstone arch. Now how tall do you think it is; and no cheating Chief Inspector. In other words do not look it up on the internet.

Now as an example, just as you can transpose temperatures such as 16 degrees = 61 degrees and 28 degrees = 82 degrees. Now that also applies to me and my good friend Norm. I am 6 foot 3 and Norm is 3 foot 6. I used to play a lot of basketball and Norm worked in a circus; now if I stood on Norm's shoulders would I be able to touch the top of the arch?

To assist you a little more take note of the few small stones at the bottom of the arch to the left as we look at it.

Answer in a few days when we have some guesses.

Gail,
Note the people sat at the left side of the arch. It is in Arches National Park in Utah and is known as Delicate Arch.

Some wags christened it 'School Mam's Bloomers'

I read somewhere it was 65 ft. Think that is the height of the hole, so to speak. Suppose it won't last forever though.
