Good morning from Salt Lake City and TGIF!

Friday trivia

This week’s stumper comes from subscriber Stan Rasmussen. It seems like an easy question, but looks can be deceiving.

Has Utah’s iconic Delicate Arch always been known by that name? If not, what name was previously given to the landmark?

Send in your guesses to me via email at [email protected]. The first person to submit a correct answer gets to ask next Friday’s trivia question.

Good luck!
