Coyote Buttes and The Wave

Last Saturday, when the weather was dry and mild, some of the team enjoyed an easy adventure hike into a scenic area know as Coyote Buttes, to a remarkable structure called The Wave.

As you can see from the photo, The Wave is a sandstone chute cut into the Coyote Buttes. The stone has eroded in interesting patterns, exposing bands of color that make it a photographer’s delight.

The entire area is very beautiful. It is located on the Utah/Arizona border, southeast of the town of Kanab. The Coyote Buttes are special management area under the Bureau of Land Management, and access is limited so hikers don’t overrun the area.

This short video clip shows our hike.

Our latest newsletter contains more info about this area.
