Hiking to The Wave, Part 3: The Second Wave
Departing from Sand Cove, we continued on our loop traversing up a sheer sandstone rock face (good thing Jeff wore his knee brace) and around on the edge of a few cliffs. Jeff, with his fear of heights, was quickly loosing his enthusiasm for this trek. Finally, as we crested the top we could see The Second Wave. It was much more beautiful than we imagined.
Who would have thought a frozen pond would be in the desert? Usually we think of waves on the water, but here we have water on the wave. Too bad we didn’t have room in our packs for our ice skates.
As the light shifted, the colors got richer.
But alas the time was ticking and the light was continually shifting… As we know it is all about the light so off we headed to the main attraction, The Wave. By now we’d been hiking for several hours and many miles. We were more than hungry. Jeff couldn’t resist a bite of “Hamburger Rock”.
Tasty, but not satisfying, we continued on… more frozen ponds – we really should have brought our ice skates.
The colors on the rocks signaled we were getting close to our final destination, The Wave.
What would we find over the next butte?
How would the light be on the Wave?
Stay tuned for Hiking the Wave, Part 4: All about the light on The Wave.
