The Wave Arizona – A Unique Phenomenon to Visit

The Wave, Arizona

The Wave Arizona is an area close to Utah-Arizona borderline. It is a unique place of bizarre and delightful rock formations located at the Paria Rimrocks, extending towards the Vermillion Cliffs and the Coyote Buttes. The famous formations are made of the so called Jurassic age Navajo Sandstone, which turned to rock after almost 200 million years. The hillocks are piled up atop each other forming these strange formations in both vertical and horizontal layers.

The entire area is like a gallery of unique sandstone arrangements which come in different sizes and patterns; some of them resemble mushrooms, some others pillars and cones. In any case the Wave Arizona features the oddest mixture of colors in the US, as deposits of iron and other metals have added to the creation of a colorful rainbow amidst the rocks.

As expected visitors flock in the area so as to admire the renowned natural phenomenon; one of the most known trekking paths in the US is found here. However, the abundant tourists and hikers menace the oneness of the area; therefore, in order to protect it, only twenty visitors per day are allowed there. The visitors are chosen through lottery, that takes place onsite and online. The Canyon is very famous among European travelers since it appeared in a German movie a few years ago- that was actually the first time that this place was advertised or promoted in any way.

The hike route and path of the Wave Arizona is quite soft and fragile; visitors and hikers are recommended to walk with extra attention and care, so as to avoid breaking the small ridges that exist along the path. It is also said that this phenomenon can be successfully photographed only during noon hours, where there are no shadows covering the kaleidoscope of colors and schemes.
