    This is Delicate Arch, one of over 2000 natural sandstone arches in Arches National Park, Utah, USA. The park is located on the Colorado River 6 km north of Moab.

    Here's another arch from this area: Double O Arch

    This structure is a communications and observations tower. It's called Tokyo Tower and is located in the Shiba-koen district of Minato, Tokyo/Japan.

    Correct, Johanna. I visited the tower in 2007, on my trip to Japan. It was the tallest free standing tower in the world when it was built.

    As per Johanna's wishes, the challenge is now opened to whoever wishes to post the next challenge.
