93 viewsThe sign for the trail to the Wave. This would have been a good thing in 2003, but then again, I wasn' t even on Wire Pass Trail, so it's not like it would have made a difference.

163 viewsIf you're coming out of the Wave, you can just figure on the back mountains as the final goal since you can take the trail and go left from there, but the problem is getting down from the mesa we were on and finding the trail across the mesa in front of us.

This wasn't the Wave - it was just a rock formation.

89 viewsThe final obstacle that I thought was at the Wave and the decision to go for it or go home.
