Formed during the Jurassic period about 190 million years ago, sand dunes compacted and hardened, with erosion form- ing the wavelike shapes in the structure over time. Everywhere you look, there are stunningly beautiful for- mations for hikers and pho- tographer to enjoy. These famous undulating forms can only be reached by a rugged, pathless hike. The Wave is located near the Arizona/Utah border on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes. It consists of two intersecting troughs that have eroded into the sandstone. The troughs that make this formation have dimensions of about 19 x 36 meters and 2 x 16 meters. At first, infre- quent runoff eroded these troughs along joints within the sandstone. After their for- mation, the drainage basin which fed water to these troughs shrank to the point where it no longer contrib- utes to the erosion. Now the troughs are mostly eroded by wind which cuts characteris- tic erosional treads and risers into the sandstone along their steep walls. These treads and risers are oriented relative to the prevailing wind direction as it funnels through the troughs. The Wave exposes large sets of cross-bedded sand- stone which represent peri- odic changes in the prevail- ing winds during the Jurassic as huge sand dunes migrated across the desert. The thin ridges and ribs seen in The Wave are the result of the dif- ferent erosion rates within the Navajo Sandstone. The sandstone is soft and fragile, so hikers needs to walk care- fully to avoid damaging the small ridges. In places, The Wave exposes deformed layers within the Navajo Sandstone, created before the sand was turned to stone. This defor- mation likely represents dinosaur tracks and the fossil burrows of desert-dwelling WWG Charger Student of the Week Bao gee Yung is a third grade student in the WWG Elementary.
