South Coyote Buttes - Vermilion Cliffs

The South Coyote Buttes is a section of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), spanning extreme South Central Utah and North Central Arizona, just south of US 89 halfway between Kanab, Utah and Page, Arizona. It is divided into two areas: South Coyote Buttes and North Coyote Buttes. Visiting either of the Coyote Buttes areas requires purchasing a hiking permit in advance.

I could not get my hands on a permit for the North Coyote Buttes (so no pictures from The Wave), but the South Coyote Buttes is also very rewarding in a photographic way. I camped here overnight, enough time for sunset and sunrise photography. This one is sunset around 8:20pm
