Coyote Buttes North, Paria Canyon - Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Arizona
... my first visit to Coyote Buttes North was stunning. But already on the walk to the Wave a thunderstorm came closer. After one and a half hour we reached the Wave but with us the dark clouds too - but we decided to stay. The contrast between the dark, energy loaded clouds and the amazing colors of the low sun in front of the Second Wave were unbelievable. Suddenly a few sunbeams found their way through the clouds and covered the Second wave in fantastic light. I hope you enjoy.
