Fall Hiking in Utah and Arizona, Part Four

Page Arizona &  Southern Utah, Sunday, Balloon Regatta and the Wave: Day Four, the last of this trip found me waking up at Bashful Bobs Motel in Page, Arizona pre-dawn looking for a few good locations to capture the mass ascension of the Balloon Regatta at sunrise throughout the town. After the Seventy-Plus Balloons took flight, I headed out to conquer "the Wave". The Wave is a beautful sandstone formation with color banding throughout in horizontal patterns. This was a very peaceful and isolated hike with no markings along the way and was a challenge for me (especially after the last three days of constant hiking), but this was truely the best of the hikes in the reward of it's powerful and intense beauty. Enjoy.
