Photographer's Note

From the parking area/campground it's hard to imagine there is anything worth exploring to the south when, to the north you can look across Lake Powell into Utah. Perhaps that is why "The New Wave" remained hidden in plain sight for so long.

"The New Wave" consists of two sets of sandstone outcrops rising out of the deep sand and scattered, high desert, vegetation of the area. The outcrops flow northeast to southwest with a ravine area between them. I found those on the east side to be more interesting, but both deserve exploration.

After visiting Horseshoe Bend under a fully overcast sky, it was good to see the clouds moving off to the east and the deep blue sky appearing for the striking contrast with the red earth.
