Petrified Forest National Park

Hey remember the big 10 day trip through Utah and Arizona featuring here here here and here? Well here’s another one.

Petrified Forest National Park is truly in the middle of nowhere.

The park’s closest town, Holbrook, is uhhhh… not that great, but there WAS a Safeway with flavor blasted goldfish. Other than that, there’s really not a lot going on in the northeast corner of Arizona. There is this park though, which is full of history and culture and petrified wood. It surprised me, I wasn’t expecting to like it so much. I didn’t really know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn’t this desert magic land.

I would definitely recommend reading more about how the wood becomes petrified or why it’s in that part of the country, if you’re interested! Either on NPS’s site, or you can ya know.. go to the park.

I digress. Here’s what I saw on that Friday in April.

I think the coolest part was it wasn’t JUST petrified wood. There were beautiful landscapes, bad lands and colorful dunes, and views of mountains miles and miles away. This country is wild, y’all.
