Is 'The Wave' The Most Beautiful Rock Formation On Earth?

While professional artists can produce some breath taking pieces of work, the most stunning examples of artistry are often created by Mother Nature herself. A trip to the deserts of Arizona provides the perfect example of this. On the slopes of Coyote Buttes near the Arizona – Utah border there lies a rock formation known as The Wave. The area got its name thanks to the incredible undulating form of the sandstone, that helps to transform the rock into a swaying ocean scene. Due to its unique shape and beautiful colouring The Wave is a hugely popular location with tourists. The area is made even more mystical by the fact its isolated spot can only be reached after an 8 mile hike through the Arizona desert. Below are a selection of incredible images of the ‘sandstone ocean’.
