The tram in the north leg of the Arch stalled before 4 p.m., stranding about 40 visitors. After about an hour, the U.S. Park Service was able to get the tram to the observation deck by manual means. A man who appeared to be a Park Service employee was taken from the Arch grounds by ambulance, above. Authorities said his injuries were minor. A visitor also received a minor injury, according to Ann Honious, deputy superintendent of the national monument. Photo by David Carson • email@example.com
If you tweet it, they will come. Alternative rock band Third Eye Blind found that out a few hours after announcing an impromptu “guerrilla style acoustic performance” under the Arch at 7:30 p.m. More than 100 people showed up for the performance.
Lead singer Stephan Jenkins told the crowd that drummer Brad Hargreaves had the idea just minutes before the tweet appeared. The band, currently on tour, performed Tuesday night in Covington, Ky.
