This is that unique and rather popular geological formation known simply as
The Wave. Even though it is a cool formation to look at and read (DREAM) about, I have not YET seen it in person.

This photo comes from a personal quest or journey taken by my friend, who
resides in central Arizona.

This is all hearsay, but my friend said you have to APPLY for a permit to
hike in this wilderness, located near the Paria River in southern Utah. You can obtain updated information by contacting the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) directly.

I wouldn't advise visiting this area in the middle of summer like my friend
did. I was told that the temperature rose to 100 degrees (F) + on this
particular day in July.

Also, you have to have a GPS or be diligent in reading a topo map to find this formation. From what I understand, the BLM has maps for the public to
use and follow. As far as guided tours go, you STILL must complete the
application for obtaining a permit to view this formation, and there is a
LIMITED number of permits ISSUED for each particular day.

So, please bring plenty of water and your orientating skills and ....

"Who, me? I'm still trying to CLONE myself, so I can
visit Washington state!"

...and display a pink cap atop my head.
