This is like no other places on Earth! It’s neither on Mars but is a 190 million-year-old sand formation. Discover amazing pictures of The Wave, some sand dunes which turned to rock through time! WOW!
You actually need a special authorization to visit this mysterious place hidden somewhere in the Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness Area in Arizona.
Yes, it’s true, these pictures could have been taken on Mars.
But actually, it’s a 190 million-year-old sand formation which turned to rock through time.
The vertical and horizontal layers are produced by deposit of calcium salts.
The different layers have vibrant colors ranging from red, orange, and purple hues and illuminate the landscape.
Really an explorer paradise as a special permit is needed to find the spectacular spot.
I would also like to experience this surreal landscape! Mysterious and unique on Earth!
Did you know that the Navajo County was full of giant sinkholes?
Half of these photos are from Antelope Canyon on the Navajo Reservation, The Wave trailhead is 52 miles from Antelope Canyon.
