Found this site by accident but what a great find it's so informative and full of great links.
I'm planning for a photography trip for late September early October for 14 days coming from UK, One of my main goals is hopefully to get a pass to hike to the Wave (Coyote Buttes North) so I will be planning a few different options depending on getting a permit.
A few questions:
If I've read it right I believe you can apply for a pass online up to 4 months before the chosen date of your visit and that you will find out if your successful at the end of the month you apply IE 3 months before your chosen visit date and I can apply for up to 3 dates, if I was not successful at all I guess I could still turn up the day before and apply to enter the raffle for a walk in permit?
If I didn't get an online permit for the wave what would be my best options for locations to photograph which would enable me to be able to get to the permit office every day?
I intend to hire an RV for the duration and I'm assuming that I won't have to much trouble getting around ?
Where would be the nearest campground be to get to Monument Valley for a sunrise?
Any recommendations on getting a good scale map or book Utah/Arizona?
Cheers in advance
