Photographer's Note

The fragile and more remote South Coyote Buttes is as magnificent as the North, but it's lacking the popularity of the Wave. In Coyote Buttes, two-hundred million years of twisted sandstone has been contorted into caverns, arches, waves, domes and thin, fragile fins of rock. Be careful not to walk on the fragile rock formations of South Coyote Buttes. Unlike the harder layers in the north section, the south has thin fins of fragile rock throughout. Walking on them breaks the fins, destroying much of the unique beauty of the southern section of the buttes.
