White Pocket

This stunning rock formation of White Pocket is about 1 square mile of unique swirls and curious curves that may make you feel like you’ve stepped onto the planet Mars. Often called “Brain Rock”, its iconic red, orange, and yellow rock formations have recently captured the attention of a company you may know, as it can now be seen as one of the wallpaper options on Apple products. This is a photographers happy place!

This longer tour is well worth it and definitely recommended as an equal alternative to the Wave, but no permit is needed!  The sand on route is very deep but our high clearance four wheel drive vehicles and experienced guides make it so you don’t have to worry. We usually stop to see the California Condors release site where you can often see them nesting on the Vermillion Cliffs.
