Winter storms deal death blow to iconic California rock formation

Not even the magic of Christmas could save an iconic California rock formation from collapsing.

On Christmas Eve, the historic rock arch along a S an Luis Obispo beach in California's Montana de Oro State Park, situated about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, collapsed in on itself, according to reporting from the Los Angeles Times.

The rock formation's collapse has been blamed on the record-breaking weather in California during the month of December, which seemingly weathered the ancient arch until it could no longer stand. The December rainfall totals in San Luis Obispo County were as high as 12 inches, and the storms that have pelted the coast have brought high waves, pounding fragile coastal features.

Speaking of animals, hanging on top of the cliff and watch dolphins swim and play was pretty relaxing:
