Coyote Buttes South

Updated: Jul 3, 2022

Why a Wonder: Coyote Buttes South is part of the 280,000-acre Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. It has some of the most spectacular sandstone formations in the world which is why it is nothing short of a wonder.

Where: Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is located in the Northern Arizona-Southern Utah area. A permit from is necessary to enter Coyote Buttes South. A four-wheel-drive high clearance vehicle is necessary due to the deep sand and sharp rocks. The closest towns are Kanab, UT and Page, AZ.

When: Summer might bring extreme temperatures, and winter flash floods, so spring and fall are the best times to go.

Photography: This is very much wide-angle lens country (12-35mm on a full frame camera) although a medium zoom can be used for abstracts and small scenes. A polarizer will be specially useful if there are small pools to do reflections. Also, bring a tripod for sunrises and sunsets.
