Pictures of the Petrified Forest
And The Painted Desert
A sea of every pastel color imaginable. The Petrified Forest and Painted Desert are like another world. An absurd kind of beauty. Yet visions that are stunning. Views that stretch to almost endless horizons. While some scenes may be a bit featureless, others are innately wondrous with colors difficult to comprehend.
It's history of an unimaginable 225 million years that slowly evolved what was once a tropical environment into a barren badland of trees that turned to stone and slow-moving erosion that exposed this land of a million colors.
