NEVERMORE!
The End of the Arch of Tennessee Valley Cove

Tennessee Valley Cove, named after the steamer wrecked just off-shore in 1853, is one of
Marin County's popular seaside locations. the tiny beach, accessible by a 1.8-mile trail from
Tennessee Valley Road, is known for it unique waved-carved arch high in the north cliff face.

This arch - "the eye of the needle" - and its bovine shape was one of my favorite painting
motifs.

On December 29, 2012, the arch tumbled down. A Caltech student recorded the crumbling
of the cliff and the destruction of the "eye" on his blog
here.
