There’s a good reason why this place is so popular. Stayed at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge the night before. Headed up House Valley Road from the south end (off 89A). Road was on good condition generally, though low clearance vehicles would take a beating.

We were in a Suburban, but managed to get a flat tire on the way. Made us a few minutes late in meeting the rest of our group at Wire Pass TH.

Got on the trail about 9:30 am. After that, it was a continuous procession of one amazing view after another.

I needed to do more research in advance to know to hike up to the Alcove and arches above the wave. I would have done that.

As it was, we did get off the beaten path and explored some areas that aren’t frequently visited.

On the way back, we tried to veer off and look down into Buckskin Gulch slot from above, but it didn’t work out. Even so, walking down the drainage was cool anyway.

Not sure I’ll get permits for this again. Glad to have experienced this unique area of impressive geological art.
