The Petrified Forest National Park, an area of 147 square miles, is about twenty-four miles east of Holbrook, Arizona. All the roads are paved and easy to maneuver, even if you're driving a large motor home and towing a trailer.
To research this newsletter, I hiked into remote wilderness areas to photograph strange formations that are off the paved roads and the marked trails. I photographed colorful expanses of The Painted Desert from the highest overlooks in the northern reaches of the park. I photographed large log jams of brilliantly-colored tree trunks washed into ancient seas. The petrified logs date back 225 million years to the late Triassic Period. The Indian ruins and petroglyphs date back over a thousand years. A map and GPS coordinates will assist you.
