The Wave, Coyote Buttes, Arizona & Utah USA

Visit to Coyote Buttes (The Wave)--one of the GREATEST hikes and BEAUTIFUL views of geology in the world; led by Gerry Bryant (geologist at Dixie State College) St George Utah and my sister Patricia Rose Ford (the pastel artist) and Verna Ames--cousin (Portland Oregon)!  Enjoy!
