The Wave - Coyote Buttes Utah/Arizona

Uploaded: March 08, 2007


Many avid photographers with camera pack on their backs have hiked the 6.5 mile round trip to this fascinating place. It has become so popular that I almost hesitate placing another inticement to the rest of the world. But what did I photograph it for? So here is my shot of "The Wave." You may have seen shots of this place many times or this may be your first but it seems to never get old seeing it again. To me it is still fascinating and it will be a hiking trip I will always remember as one I took with my son. - AIV 030807
