The Wave is made of Jurassic-age Navajo Sandstone that is approximately 190 million years old. Scientists who study The Wave say that the old sand dunes turned into hard compacted rock over the ages, calcifying in vertical and horizontal layers. Erosion by wind and rain has created the spectacular landscape which appears now.
So, if you love see odd and unusual places, 'The Wave' is a perfect destination for you. Note that, a permit is required to visit The Wave. The permit is provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which manages the beautiful rock formation. The BLM limits access to the North Coyote Buttes Wilderness Area to just twenty permits per day. Ten of the permits are available in advance by reservation, and the remaining ten are made available by lottery the day before at the nearest ranger station.
