Above The Wave. The Wave is a glorious paleo-sanddune site on BLM land in the Coyote Buttes area just on the Arizona side of the Utah-Arizona border. The 3 mile hike across red sandstone from the gravel road is so popular that a lottery is staged 3 months in advance for 10 permits. 10 more are made available the day before.
