The Wave in Coyote Buttes, Vermilion Cliffs Park

Welcome to "The Wave" in Coyote Buttes, Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. The fantastic photo above was taken by Arny Raedts of ArnyZona, who wrote:

The Coyote Buttes are part of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument and are half way between Kanab (UT) and Page (AZ). It is one of the least visited south Utah Parks and the reason is that is it is so precious that the Bureau of Land Management only gives out 10 permits a day! It took us three years to get a permit, but it was worth it!

I drove through this area on a roadtrip I took back in April, and although I didn't see this particulat spot, the drive down US-89 between Panguitch, Kanab and Page is one of the most beautiful areas I've ever seen. Until you see it yourself, it's hard to believe rocks even exist in the deep shades of red you find down there.

wow cool. I think the effect would be lost though, if there were a bunch of other tourists around.

Nothing ruins the moment more than a crowd.

both spellings are acceptable.

This is one of hundreds of unique and amazing places in southern utah.

I was just out at the wave in May it's awesome, i was alone the whole time until i passed a group of 4 german tourists on my way out.

here's a clip on youtube(the wave section starts at about 4:00)

Ooh, I've always thought it's spelled "vermillion" with two Ls, but it turns out you're right rich mayo, it's "vermilion" with one L. Fixed now on the post.

The word "vermilion" itself, which means reddish orange, can be spelled both ways.
