Photographer's Note

You need to get permit to visit this area, only limited number of permit each day. Unlike Coyote Butte South, even though you have to drive on dirt road, you don’t need high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle to get here, therefore it is much more popular and harder to get a permit, especially in the high season. See BLM web page for how to obtain a permit.
Once we were here, it is easier to understand why there’s a need to limit visitors here. The environment here is very fragile. As you walked on this rocks made of thin layers of plate, some of it crumbles as you step on it. Some you can break with your fingers and if you rub on it and it crumble into sands.
