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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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.
