'The Wave'

We have been on the road again exploring Parks in the States. One of the highlights has been our hike to 'The Wave'- the actual name.

 It is located in Southern Utah.  Only 20 people a day can make the trek to 'The Wave' and they are chosen by lottery- 10 via online application and 10 @ the Warden Office the day before.  'The Wave' is ribbons of limestone that create these surreal land formations. 
The whole experience is quite the adventure from waiting in the office the morning before with many others to see if we'd be chosen, the excitment of being chosen, to hiking an unmarked trail using a sheet of pictures as reference points to The Wave,  then the awe of stepping into 'The Wave'.
That is my husband Ron in the picture. 

Just had to share this and encourage others to check it out.
Miss you guys.  How's it hanging out there?
