Numbers of pools form which contain hundred of fairy shrimp and tadpoles. For several days these pools can be present. It is also called the second wave which has little colors but it still of interest to most photographers and visitors.
The trail to The Wave begins at the Wire Pass Trail head, almost about 13.4 km south of US 89 along House Rock Valley Road, a dirt road about 35.4 miles west of Page, Arizona or 38.6 miles (62.1 km) east of Kanab, Utah, that is accessible to most vehicles in good weather. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Wire Pass Trail-head includes a wide parking lot with restrooms, but no water. This is a longer access route over dirt road than that from the Utah side.
