Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona
Yesterday we witnessed nature's paintbrush in all it's glory! The Painted Desert and Petrified Forest offer an amazing array of colors to behold. If you ever, ever, ever, get a chance to visit this amazing place.... it will take your breath away.
These images (which hardly do it justice) are from the Blue Mesa Trail, which took us on a walk down into the valley between these amazing blue/green and purple stripe mountains, into the remains of the Petrified Forest. The amazing colors in these mountains was just an opener for the colors offered in the chunks of petrified wood that was scattered around at the base of the mountains.
