This two photo stitch was taken in The Wave permit area on Bureau of Land Management, Coyote Buttes North Unit, wilderness area in Northern Arizona.
I would like to have had a person in the photo for scale, but the sides were way too steep, including the place where I was standing. The green patches are not brush, but reasonable sized Utah Juniper trees. We hiked in at sunrise, we had the place to ourselves four hours. Next trip one of us will walk into the canyon from the lower end. It is probably two hundred feet deep. There are many other spectacular spots in this area for a reasonably short hike. We hiked three miles in and another two while there, so a reasonable eight mile hike, every step spectacular SW landscape.
This is a remembrance of a hike in July of 2009, looking forward to a six month trip in our motorhome, Turtle beginning in May.
