Painted Desert and Petrified Forest Selections
Lens: 18-135 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Arizona 
Posted By: markvc, 06-18-2015, 04:57 PM

A few shots from our day in the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. The Painted Desert view was enhanced by a recent rain. The petroglyphs are at a place called Newspaper Rock.
An interesting park if you have never been there - an easy loop off of I-40 in eastern Arizona. The third photo really shows the colors of the petrified wood.

Good ones. I like that area. Remnants of Route 66 go though it.
