This young couple from Germany spent 12 days in Kanab trying to get a pass to visit The Wave. They lucked out on their last day. She was 7 months pregnant! They said it was the trip of their lives. You meet such wonderful people in such wonderful places like The Wave. I apply every month for a pass. In twelve years I have gotten 15 passes. Weather and road conditions killed 6 trips; but, I made it in 9 times. You just have to keep trying. Try and time your hike to arrive at The Wave at high noon. Only then will you see this formation without shadows. I see lots of pictures of The Wave. So many of them are over saturated.
