You are about to see one of the most beautiful wilderness areas on the planet. Having filmed on many continents, I must say I have filmed very little to equal this!
The Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness is a 112,500 acres wilderness area located in northern Arizona and southern Utah, USA, within the arid Colorado Plateau region. You can enter several parts of this area by permit only. This was the case with "The Wave" shown in this program. This short four minute show represents only a very small part of what is there and what I filmed.
The wilderness is composed of broad plateaus, tall escarpments, and deep canyons. The Paria River flows through the wilderness before joining the Colorado River at Lee's Ferry, Arizona.
The U.S. Congress designated the wilderness area in 1984 and it was largely incorporated into the new Vermilion Cliffs National Monument proclaimed in 2000 by executive order of President Bill Clinton. Both the wilderness area and the National Monument are administered by the federal Bureau of Land Management.
Some places are an absolute privilege to see. This is one of them.
