When I say we’re lucky to get into #thewavearizona , I mean it. We applied ONCE. The email was due to arrive the day my family and I were leaving Disneyland. I had such a wonderful time with them that my thought was “well, I’ll check to see if we got it but I’m sure we didn’t and it’s fine cause this was such and fun weekend and also @bstasia and I would have such a magical #NPS trip regardless”. So I opened my email, saw it had arrived and clicked on it. I stood there with my mouth agape. WE WON. I yelled “WE GOT THE WAVE!”. @larsgarvey yelled back from the other room “WHAT?!” And then I called Stasia and pretty sure the moment she answered I screamed the same thing to her. Apparently there is a less than 1% chance that you’ll be picked in the lottery. We’ve been told by many people that they’ve tried for years. Tom, the kind volunteer ranger said someone tried for 10 years to get it and that we should go directly to Vegas. So, yes. We are so lucky to have seen one of the mostly beautiful places in this world. Everyone should try to visit #thewave...even if it takes 10 years.
