Petrified Forest National Park

As I wrote in yesterday's post the mineral rich water that soaked into the wood is what created the assortment of colors in the rock.

They call it the Rainbow Forest

The park encourages you to stay on the trails and for the most part it appears people do just that.
After all, you can see all the petrified wood that you want just from the trail alone.
Not much point to go wandering about.  It's just more of the same.


  1. WOW, those colours! You really took some good photos.

  2. I'd heard of this phenomenon but those are the first photos I've ever seen. Rather more spectacular than I imagined.
