The ‘Wave’ is a striped sandstone formation, the lines of colour in the sandstone creating wave-like patterns, forming a type of sandstone surf.
If you are interested in scale, Al (featured in the photo below) is 6′ 3″.

wow! Love the lines AND colors!!
It is an amazing place to photograph and there are so many other amazing formations nearby that even if you don’t win the lottery there’s always something to see.
Fantastic! Nature is just beautiful!!
These are great! Putting this on my bucket list. I have been to Arches Monument and Dead Horse Point, but I would love to visit here. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
There are some cool toadstool rock formations near there that I really wanted to see but you need a four-wheel drive (or a ton of stamina) to get into them. I’m definitely going back and if we don’t ‘win’ the wave lottery we’ll have to rent one of those vehicles.
Such striking movement and texture in these photos. Made me want to reach out and stroke the screen. What an amazing experience it must have been to be standing in the midst of it all.
It really doesn’t look real!
Fantastic photos of what looks like an amazing place! 🙂
Wonderful! Isn’t nature glorious?!
