Explore this Scenic area with Navajo sandstones

This is not the same as the Wave but is located at the opposite end (south side instead of north side) from the Wave. Though it also requires a permit to tour, it’s well worth the effort. Coyote Buttes South is just a small part of the 112,500 acre Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, but has some of the most visually striking geologic sandstone formations in the world. It is a very solitary place where you can often see no one.
