The Wave Is An Otherworldly Destination On The Utah Border
Some of Utah’s most stunning destinations…aren’t in Utah. Oh, don’t worry – we still have plenty of legit jaw-droppers inside our borders (take in the views at Bryce Canyon National Park, for instance). But there’s one pretty famous place that draws hikers and photographers from all over the world, and it’s often mistakenly attributed to Utah. The Wave is an otherworldly place in the desert…but it’s a couple miles inside the Arizona border. We won’t tell if you won’t. Just take a look at this amazing, surreal environment.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
We’d love to hear from you if you’ve hiked the wave, or if you’re planning on it! Share your stories and photos with us in the comments.
