    Fascinating rock formations! It seems amazing that a forest once grew there in New Mexico … a few million years ago 🙂

    What an extraordinary and amazing place it is, your Painted Desert !!!

    1. If I hadn’t seen the colors in person I would not be able to believe these are the real colors!

        And how horizon-widening in an absolutely literal sense, Iris !

  3. The Petrified Forest National Park is in Arizona. But we do have similar formations in the Bisti Badlands and De-Na-Zin wilderness area in Northwestern New Mexico.

    1. What town is it close to? I would love to drive through there one day.

      1. South of Farmington. BLM has a web page on them with directions to the trail heads at http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en/prog/blm_special_areas/wilderness_and_wsas/wilderness_areas/bisti.html

      2. OMG…I just googled the Bisti Badlands! Why have I never heard of this area? It’s totally AMAZING. Thank you so very much for telling me! We already have plans for Four Corners because when we went there in 2010 it was closed for construction. We plan to visit Chaco Canyon on the way so Bisti is right there on the way.
