postcard from petrified forest national park

petrified forest national park is in northeast arizona, but it’s like arriving on a different planet. it’s truly in the middle of nowhere, so i’m happy we were able to pass through on our road trip through the southwest.

the park is named for its large deposits of petrified wood, and known for its fossils, badlands, and colorful plateaus – aka, the Painted Desert.

    Wow. The petrified wood is amazing. It looks like rock or granite. Did you know it takes millions of years for wood to become petrified. According to isotopic geological data reported by the National Park Service, trees in the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona are between 211 and 218 million years old. Awesome pictures
