In today’s world, some locations must be protected from the popularity of photography.
There is a spot most of us have seen but probably have never been to. It actually has its own nickname. The Wave is a rock formation famous for its unique features. It is located in Coyote Buttes North on the Utah Arizona border. This is not a place you can pull the car off the road and get a picture of. There are only twenty permits issued per day making it one of the more exclusive photographic experiences one can find. Half of the days are booked months in advance and there are 10 walk-in spots per day. During the busy season there can be 150 photographers hoping for one of the limited passes.
