The Wave

The deep red Navajo Sandstone in this unique formation was first eroded by water and then later primarily by wind to create the smooth rolling terrain that resembles waves found in the ocean. Manifested in two separate U-shaped troughs, they are as narrow as 7 feet and as wide as 60 feet and over 100 feet long. The differing densities of stone have caused it to erode at different speeds causing undulating parallel fins of rock to run along the entire surface. It is a bizarrely beautiful landscape tucked in among the barren desert that surrounds it. It’s a 3-mile hike in across the open desert and only 20 permits are issued a day to access.
