085 - The South Coyote Buttes, Arizona (PDF)
Photograph America Newsletter on the South Coyote Buttes, Arizona
 
West of Lake Powell and north of the Grand Canyon, in a remote desert wilderness area, are the Coyote Buttes. Scattered across a bizarre red sandstone landscape are strangely sculptured formations. The largest concentration of these stone patterns are on the Utah-Arizona border. There are flat sandstone plateaus crisscrossed with knee-high stone fins. Some of these delicate fins are so thin, sunlight passes through them. There are tall stone towers and unusual arches in the South Buttes. This newsletter has a map and GPS coordinates to get you started on your explorations. Also included are directions to an area of balancing mushroom rocks near Glen Canyon Dam.
