That is so awesome and we thank you for sharing! So glad you won the lottery!


AMAZING!!! So glad you were both able to make this hike together:o)) Thanks so much for sharing the experience with us!!

Simply beautiful ~ thank you!

Well, having only done The Wave myself this past November, I was as very eager to read about your hike -- as much so after having seen it myself as I would have been never having seen it. YEAH! So excited you got to experience it!

I enjoyed the photos of the alternate hike out. I did the trail "solo," so I didn't have the nerve to veer off the path more than a few inches. haha!!

If you are interested in a different experience hiking out, you can click on my name to find the link...first post under "Utah." (at the risk shameless promotion, I just want to share.)

It took me 18 months of entering the monthly lottery by mail. Just like the real lottery, you must pay five bucks each time you enter whether you win or lose. I don't know how you two felt about this, but after having the "wilderness experience" in such a gorgeous, other-worldly environment mostly all to myself, I am really grateful that they run it this way. It was worth every frustrating, disappointing email I received saying "You were not selected" after I felt the pristine wonder of it all.

(Sorry for the long comment, but as you can tell, I am very passionate about that place!)

Congrats and thanks for taking us along!

Some of the required hiking “techniques” (moving sideways on the walls) reminds me of the Fiery Furnace hike in Arches. Quite spectacular pictures.

It almost doesn't seem like that's a real place on this earth... And as usual, H & L bring us to it... Thanks for the tour..

I never knew such a place existed on Earth. Awesome doesn't even come close! thanks for sharing.

I really believe luck had nothing to do with you winning the Wave lottery. You were meant to go in there and take us along too. :)
The photos are beautiful. I'm glad Linda was able to do the hike.

VERY Cool! Thanks so much for sharing.

Very nice photos and we to have never heard of this place before, chocolate and vanilla swirling around!

It's even more beautiful than I thought. There aren't even words to describe this place. I love your adventure beyond. The entire area has that red swirling appearance. Great hike!!

So glad you put so many pictures in the post. I went through them three times. Thanks!!

Glad you both were well enough to make this amazing hike! Take care of yourselves!

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful pics and on my bucket list for sure!

So happy you got to hike The Wave! Thanks for sharing your brilliant photos!

You have just added to my Bucket List of things I must do. I have to see this in person!

Thanks for sharing!

Awsome pics! There is a "junior" version of this at Valley of Fire SP in Nevada, about 55 north of Vegas and 18 Mile east of I-15. Same type of swirled rock, but smaller - bonus is that it is only about 3/4 of a mile from the trailhead to the swirls.
