Brain Dump Mondays: The Bucket List

I know I know, that movie The Bucket List looks cheesy, but I love the concept! I’ve decided to add a new category called the “bucket list” which consists of things I want to do. I will continue to add to it from here on out. Most items on my to do list are usually to travel/see something. I want to do a mini-profile on places I discover and add them to my bucket list as a must see!

The Wave, Arizona

I actually can’t believe I’ve been to Arizona several times and completely missed out on this place! I’ve seen Sedona, Grand Canyon, and even Antelope Canyon (which was beautiful by the way!). Thinking about all of these places makes me realize what a scenic state Arizona is! Definitely a must see in the US.

What is it: a sandstone formation on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in northern Arizona

How to get to there: a 3 mile hike (6 miles roundtrip) with no trails and only 350 ft of elevation (very doable!). Since there are no trails it is best to talk to the park rangers on recommended routes.

Best time to go: early in the morning when it’s cooler and avoid summers where the temperature can reach 100+. yeah, I remember the heat in Arizona is unbearable! Some say October is the best month when there is light rain and unique photo opportunities with pools of water.

Permits
: Only 20 permits are allowed access to the Coyote Buttes a day because of their fragile nature! 10 reservations can be made in advance, while the other 10 are given out the day of in a lottery which takes place at 9am.

Pictures
: This is definitely a picturesque place and you don’t want to leave your camera behind. The best time to take pictures is midday when there are no shadows in the center, though striking photos can be had at any time. Best photos are supposedly taken at the north unit.

This just goes to show you that there are still some places in the US that are worth seeing.
