Amazing Landscape : The Wave, Arizona (10 Pics)

Ever heard of 'The Wave'? Take a look at the picture. The Wave is a sandstone rock formation located in the United States of America near the Arizona and Utah border on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes, in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colorado Plateau. It is famous among hikers and photographers for its colorful, undulating forms, and the rugged, trackless hike required to reach it.

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.

The Spiral Jetty Sculpture (10 Pics)

Take a look at the picture. This is Spiral Jetty, an earthwork sculpture constructed in 1970 by American sculptor Robert Smithson. Built of mud, salt crystals, basalt rocks, earth, and water on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake near Rozel Point in Utah, the Spiral Jettry forms a 1500-foot long, 15-foot wide counterclockwise coil jutting from the shore of the lake which is only visible when the level of the Great Salt Lake falls below an elevation of 4,197.8 feet. Some more pictures below.

At the time of its construction, the water level of the lake was unusually low because of a drought. Within a few years, the water level returned to normal and submerged the jetty for the next three decades. Due to a drought, the jetty re-emerged in 2004 and was completely exposed for almost a year. The lake level rose again during the spring of 2005 due to a near record-setting snowpack in the mountains and partially submerged the Jetty again.

Smithson reportedly chose the Rozel Point site based on the blood-red color of the waters and its connection with the primordial sea. Originally black basalt rock against ruddy water, it is now largely white against pink due to salt encrustation and lower water levels. The sculpture is currently owned by the Dia Art Foundation of New York.

Eco//07 : Bicycle with Foldable Body and Wheels

Take a look at the bicycle in the picture above. This is a fully collapsible bicycle designed by Mexican industrial designer Victor M. Aleman. Named 'Eco // 07', this beautiful urban bicycle is designed to save space when it is being transported or when not in use. But, wait! This is not an ordinary bike. Most parts of the bike, including the wheels, can be folded. Don't believe me? First take a look at the pictures.

Eco // 07 design consists of two systems - Wheel folding system and Bike Structure system. The Wheel is composed by six modules, each one has a double pivot in the joints, this allows the wheel to fold and become smaller, the spokes are contained in the inner structure of the wheel, when you unfold the system, the spokes rotate to the center of the mechanism where it attach to the center of the wheel. The double triangular bike structure is composed by expandable modules, each one collapses to a smaller dimension and then this modules align by the rotation of the axis in the joint of the structure, to keep in position all the structure is used an special part in a form of an X that aligns all the modules to their position.
