We stayed at this park for two nights so we could drive through the National Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. This is a nice 28 mile drive through the Painted Desert which has mounds, canyons and land with many colors from reds, yellows, blues and other colors as if painted on the landscape. The last 10 miles was made up a petrified rain forest--these are trees from what was a rain forest and now petrified and turned into stone.
