Coyote Butte South is not as well-known as the more popular Coyote Buttes North but it is more remote and personal. So far, I have two trips out to Coyote Buttes South. The first time I visited Paw Hole and loved the waves in the rock here. The road in is very deep sand and I slightly deflated my tires for better floatation on the sand. Then about a mile hike in the sand gets you to this remarkable place! Whew! The colors and lines just go crazy in all sorts of incredible patterns that are similar to "the Wave" of CB North. I thoroughly enjoyed this visit and found great photographic potential here and recently returned from another trip to Paw Hole.
Lines and Towers of Coyote Buttes South alternate yellow, orange, pink, red, salmon. The sunrise clouds are pink and the whole world is color and more color. It's a sensory overload and wonderful to witness.
Coyote Yellow Dawn: from a vantage point deep in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument, this view looks out towards The Dive and Buckskin Gulch. Between me and those distant beacons stand the Cottonwood Teepee and the North Teepees of Coyote Buttes. Dawn and sunrise are spectacular here!
Lines and Towers (Version 2) of Coyote Buttes South alternate yellow, orange, pink, red, salmon. The sunrise clouds are pink and the whole world is color and more color. It's a sensory overload and wonderful to witness.
Teepee Decoration: The name "teepee" is given to these conical sandstone formation in the desert. The walls of this teepee are the most colorful I've ever seen with amazing lines of red, pink, orange, yellow and white.
