Petrified Forest National Park & Painted Desert

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by rubylu on June 26, 2006

The Painted Desert is part of the Petrified Forest National Park, on the north end near I-40. I entered the park from the South and went through the rest of the park before getting to the Painted Desert. It was late in the day when I got there, and the shadows made for interesting visual effects. The scenery was dramatic, and I pulled off the road at several view areas. The visitor center was closed by then, so I didn't get to see it.
