"The Wave" is actually an old sea bed that have formed over centuries of wind and water. It is out in the middle of nowhere and is not for the faint of heart to reach. It requires about a 7 mile hike round trip and access is VERY limited by the Grand Staircase National Monument. Only about twenty passes are allowed each day. Remember, even though this is called the wave, it is in the middle of unforgiving desert and you must pack in alot of water for the full day trip. But the lucky few who get the passes to hike to this location are well rewarded with it's beauty!
