Coyote Buttes, the Wave - Paria Plateau

Coyote Buttes - Paria Plateau, ArizonaCoyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), spanning extreme South Central Utah and North Central Arizona, just south of US 89 halfway between Kanab, Utah and Page, Arizona. It is divided into two areas: Coyote Buttes North and Coyote Buttes South. To visit either of the Coyote Buttes areas you will need to purchase a hiking permit in advance. Only 20 people per day are allowed to hike in. The BLM Website explains how to obtain a permit. One of the highlights of Coyote Buttes North Area is the spectacular rock formation known simply as The Wave, an incredible sandstone formation which has been photographed countless times, and the Second Wave, another fabulous sandstone swirl.
