Brief Directions

Visiting The Wave requires a cross-country hike of over 3 miles each way from the Wire Pass Trailhead on House Rock Road, near Kanab, Utah. Only 20 hiking permits, awarded by lottery, are issued for each day by the Bureau of Land Management.

Notes

For maximum control over contrast and detail, three exposures were captured one stop apart. After adjustment in Adobe Lightroom, a High Dynamic Range (HDR) master was created in Photomatix, then given a final adjustment in Adobe Lightroom.

Description

Striated layers of Navajo sandstone undulate under erosive forces, gradually uncovering rock formed in the Jurassic Period, 150 to 190 million years ago.
