The Wave In Vermillion Cliffs National Monument — Image by kenne

The Color of earth
A wave minus sea water
Time to wave good-bye.

I April of this year a group of us from southern Arizona hikes the Wave in Coyote Buttes. You can see the photos and learn of our experience by visiting the related articles below. I’m sure there will be future postings revisiting the experience and maybe some return trips to this wonderful land.

Nature And Hiking Companions Provide For A Trip Of A Lifetime   8 comments

Pat and Tom Markey on HWY 89 near the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument just south of Page, Arizona

We just returned from a trip to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, near Lake Powell and Page, Arizona. This remote and unspoiled monument is a geologic treasure in northern Arizona and southern Utah is a must see area containing Paria Plateau, Vermilion Cliffs, Coyote Buttes and Paria Canyon. Our planned trip, lead by Dean Perron, was to hike into The Wave in Coyote Buttes. Since it is difficult to not get plenty of beautiful photos of one of natures masterpieces, I have many I will be sharing in later posting.

Scenic view of the Vermilion Cliff along HWY 89.

The Vermilion Cliffs is one of the newest national monuments (established in 2000). This scenic region is marked only by a few signposts, remaining without any visitor facilities or other improvements — leaving it as a place where people explore by themselves. Administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), it remains a region where most tourists pass by in route to the Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell.
