Pics from the Wave in Arizona, USA

Postby IncaTrail50 » Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:41 pm

Just got back from a wonderful hiking trip to the Wave in Arizona. This is an area that is restricted to only 20 hikers per day and the permits are assigned via a lottery system, 10 online four months ahead, 10 at the ranger station the day before. We've had our permits for four months and it was worth the wait! It took us about an hour forty minutes to hike each way, but luckily it was cool so we didn't bake in the sun! I'm including a few bird shots from a hike in Phoenix as well.
Enjoy!

Nice pics, Jon! Totally agree about it being worth the hike to the Wave! You had some great clouds for the sky in your pics too. Nice! Thanks for sharing.
