The Multi Coloured Peaks Of The Wave In Arizona Captured On An Attractive Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The picture on this acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, perfectly exhibits the colour and beauty of The Wave. This ancient feature of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness is positioned close to the Arizona border with Utah, on the slopes of Coyote Buttes. Coyote Buttes is an area of Jurassic Navajo Sandstone and features a dinosaur trackway which contains over one thousand dinosaur footprints made approximately 190 million years ago. The wonderful, yet slightly strange shapes, and the magical colours, of The Wave are a perfect fit in this magical feeling landscape; a landscape which is delightfully captured on our acrylic fridge magnet.
Coyote Buttes, Its Geography And Areas
The sandstone landscape of Coyote Buttes is separated into two areas; Coyote Buttes North and Coyote Buttes South. The intriguing landscape of The Wave is situated in the North Coyote Buttes. Also located in Coyote Buttes is the popular hiking destination of Buckskin Gulch; the deepest and longest slot canyon in this area of the United States. Slot canyons are narrow but deep pathways through rock which are made by rushing water, and water is still a major concern when hiking in these canyons due to the possibility of flash floods and the lack of escape routes. Access to both Buckskin Gulch and the Coyote Buttes North and The Wave is via Wire Pass Trailhead. This area is the gateway to the whole area and can usually be reached by passenger vehicle although the terrain can sometimes become muddy if there is rain. The almost surreal beauty of the area, particularly in the case of The Wave make the area a place well worth visiting, as you can see from the colourful portrayal on our acrylic fridge magnet.
