We visited Arizona in early May in order to avoid the high temperatures of summer. The weather didn't disappoint with snow, rain, sandstorms and sun. Arizona contains some of the most unusual sandstone formations on earth. Some have only been recently discovered, and the jewel in the crown is 'The Wave'. With only 20 people a day allowed to visit the Wave, it is pot luck obtaining a permit., and the luck was out. A close neighbour to the Wave is another wilderness, South Coyote Buttes, and it was easy to get a permit to visit. A high clearance, 4 wheel drive is required to get to the Cottonwood Teepees which show some similar unusual sandstone formations. Also in Arizona is 'Monument Valley' the scene from many a cowboy film which is well worth a visit. The town of Page, near Lake Powell is an ideal place to stay for exploring the area.
