Coyote Butte South 

This is not the same as the Wave but is located at opposite end (south side instead of north side) from the Wave. Though it also requires a permit to tour, it’s well worth the effort. Coyote Butte South is just a small part of the 112,500 acre Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, but has some of the most visually striking geologic sandstone formations in the world. It is a very solitary place where you can often see no one.
