The Wave of Coyote Buttes

So, if you have been wondering why I haven't uploaded any shots for 3 days, it is because I was taking a Southwest adventure to photograph The Wave. Getting this shot was not that are the steps:


1. Coworker won an online lottery permit to visit the area and sold it to me for face value (1/100 chance to win)


2. Flew to Salt Lake City and then to St. George, Utah


3. Drove a Kia Rondo 2.5 hrs through the desert, rain, and blowing snow up and down a mountain


4. Drove another hour on a rutted dirt road with many sharp rocks (avg speed 20 mph)


5. Hiked 2 hours through the desert (and back) carrying my tripod - getting lost halfway through (thank God for GPS)
