Brief Directions

Petrified Forest National Park is located in northeastern Arizona, about 50 miles from the New Mexico border on Interstate 40.

Notes

Sunsets are gorgeous in this park. Late summer is a great time for having a wide, wide sky filled with big fluffy clouds that bring brief afternoon rains. I hear that the wildflowers are just as colorful as the landscape in late spring!

Description

Petrified Forest National Park was nothing like what I expected! Besides the petrified wood, petroglyphs,fossils,ancient ruins and desert wildlife, my favorite part was the amazing layers of sediment that create a stunning vista of colorful 'badlands'. A real gem of a national park that doesn't get a lot of mention, and should!
