Petrified Forest - Arizona

The petrified forest from a visitor perspective is rather a small portion of the park that includes the painted forest and historic ruins. The most prominent area includes the remains of many trees that now appear as rock. The quartz like formations with superb color formations make for an interesting stop. A main walking area had many of the former trees laying on the ground, broken up like someone had cut them for wood. Do not think you could split them easily though.

The Story behind the picture

Sure that what we encountered was not the extent of the exhibition, but I was more impressed with the painted desert.
