"The Wave" is a sandstone rock formation in Coyote Buttes North, Paria Canyon - Vermillion Cliffs Wildness, USA.

You have to be one of 20 who luckily get the permit to enter this unique and wonderful landscape.

From the Wire Pass Trailhead, the Wave can be reached by hiking approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) across open desert, making the round-trip to and from the Wave a nearly 6-mile (9.7 km) hike that climbs about 350 feet (110 m) in altitude.

It's so strenuous hike for me to walk on sandy ground carrying 4 L of drinking water and heavy camera equipment on my own. After long strenuous hike, the last part of the trail is the steep sandy cliff that made me almost gave up because of my legs clamps.

Finally, I could reach my dream destination. It's one of the most wonderful place ever seen.
