The Wave

The Wave consists of intersecting sandstone troughs that open into a small bowl, perched on the far north edge of Top Rock. Many have written about The Wave, and endless photos have been snapped, but in the end it’s a place that must be seen and experienced. The wave itself is small; it’s only about 120 feet across at the widest point. Enjoying it in isolation is like picking a single chocolate chip out of the cookie. The surrounding Coyote Buttes are a multicolored slickrock playground. If you’re lucky enough to visit, make sure to see some of the surrounding features, including the Second Wave, Top Rock, Sand Cove, Fatali’s Boneyard, and other unnamed goodies.
