I was shooting at Coyote Buttes South yesterday and I made this image. The Coyote Buttes are on the border of Arizona and Utah. The land is divided into two sections, North and South. The land is managed by the BLM, and visitors must have a permit to enter. There is a daily quota of twenty permits for each section. The North section is full almost everyday, as it has more popular and well known landmarks (The Wave, The Boneyard, etc.) Just google it if you’re not familiar. The South section, however, is quite desolate, and getting a permit is usually pretty easy. High clearance 4WD is a neccessity to get to the trailheads, which helps thin out the crowd a bit as well. I was there for two days, and didn’t see another soul! While the North section has more landmarks, I feel like the South section is a bit more impressive due to the fact that it’s so much more diverse.
