The Wave is an amazing red sandstone rock formation located in the Arizona and Utah border on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colarado Plateau.

Hugo Martin from the Los Angeles Times said:

“You can’t call yourself a landscape photographer if you haven’t snapped a photo or two of the Wave.”

Permit is needed to visit this site and only 20 people are allowed to visit The Wave each day.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management limits access to protect The Wave’s delicate red sandstone formation and to prevent overcrowding at the designated wilderness site in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in St. George, Arizona.

Firefighters are still working to stop the bad wildfire in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Colorado wildfire is known as Waldo Canyon Fire.

Waldo Canyon Fire has scorched 17,659 acres (7,149 hectares) and burned  about 346 homes.

It is the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.

In Utah, the Rosecrest Fire has burned at least two homes in the foothills around Herriman.

And about 200 homes around the area are in danger if the fire spread.

This is a disaster.

I am very sad and sorry to the ones who lost their homes.

In June, there was a huge wide fire in New Mexico.

More than 30,000 people have been evacuated in what is now the most destructive wildfire in state history. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)
