The wave is located in the United States of America, at the Arizona and Utah border, in the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness. The site became very famous due to its rare rock formation, ancient history, and beautiful views. Want to give waves a new significance in your life? This gorgeous site will blow your mind, surfing rock waves can make a better and more impressive picture this spring or fall, comparing to surfing water waves, which everyone is doing. If you are tired of the ordinary, this place is for you!
The Wave dates back to the Jurassic Period, why not experience the dinosaurs’ age first hand and become part of history at the same time? At first sight, people believe that the rock formation was created due to water, but that is not the case. Researchers explain that the troughs are actually eroded by wind. The direction of the wind designed the fascinating wave-like shapes. Therefore, this illustrates the development of the eolian sandstone, rock formations deposited by the wind, creating the sequence of layers called laminae. From the images and the analysis of The Wave, the direction of the wind changed over time, which is demonstrated by the different laminations formed. I know you would love to see if you can change the direction of the waves yourself, touching the layers, forming shapes, but be careful, they might break and you might ruin the long process of their formation. It is best to respect the course of nature and dedicate your time to viewing and not destroying the site. People have been distorting nature and customizing it for themselves enough; here at The Wave the wonders of the earthly forces are best represented.
Tourists who want to visit The Wave, must have a hiking permit, and schedule their tour in advance with some months. The best times to visit are spring and fall, since in the summer the temperatures are too high and it might be very dangerous. Winter could also be a possibility, yet the nights are very cold. There were instances in which people ventured out into The Wave without permission or without a guide and they sadly met an untimely demise. It can be a deadly place if the people are not properly prepared for emergencies. Even though it can take some planning into visiting The Wave, it will be a unique experience. Being able to witness a site, which survived for millions of years, is a chance of a lifetime. Become part of history, get in touch with nature, and explore your inner peace!
