The Wave is an awesome place to visit, if you can get the permits. The Coyote Buttes North area has a 20 people per day limit, and maybe you can be one of the lucky ones to get picked in the lotto either online, or by walk in.
This video was shot on my 3rd visit to the area on January 16th, 2015. The sand was froze and some of the water too. That sun sure warmed you up on the 6 plus mile round trip hike. We visited places like the main part of the Wave, Sand Cove, Second Wave, and the Bone Yard. It is a great places to visit.
