In an interesting move by Disney, the former Nature's Wonderland Natural Arch that most recently served as a border between Big Thunder Trail and the Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue seems to have avoid demolition, if only temporarily. If anyone has seen recent photos of the construction site, the arch is standing there next to a tree which has been roped off in the middle of what is otherwise a large clearing of dirt. The buttes which used to be attached to the arch have been completely removed (leaving a rather large hole in the side of the arch where it appears some work is going on).

At this point I have to wonder if the Arch will become part of the new border between Star Wars Land and Frontierland or if it will be seen from the Disneyland Railroad as a call back to Nature's Wonderland. I can't think of any other reason why they would demolish everything else in that area yet leave the arch there. Regardless, leaving that arch there would be fitting tribute and nod towards what once was the Living Desert, especially since all the other rock work is now gone.
