Two lower-triangular arrays with entries that count RNA secondary structures of a given length are mentioned in this short talk. The array entries also count specific lattice walks. There is a one-to-one correspondence between RNA structures and a subset of the walks. We will discuss various ways in which the walks can be used as a tool to help predict primary RNA sequences.
