The Interstate Highway splits Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest and at 70 MPH you can't tell what treasures they hide. Leave the boring superhighway for a few hours and go exploring.
The examples of petrified wood are a continuing fascination to me.
Here is but one example of what happens when fallen trees have their individual cells replaced with the many minerals found in the soil.

Charlie, thanks for the picture. Brilliant colors. Reminds me that in 17 years in AZ, I still did not visit this place.

Glad you like the pic.
As I remember- from Phoenix you can drive north and turn right at Flagstaff.
When the sign says Petrified Forest National Park- stop .
But don't go in winter, it's cold.

Petrified forest is in my bucket list. Last time was there in 1992. Time to go there sometime soon. Thank you for the reminder Charlie.

Wow, that is spectacular. I must make a Southwest tour before I'm too old and feeble. Have you visited the Gingko Petrified forest near Vantage, WA? Lots of petrified trees there too.

Thanks Amagi and alraC,
This was sort of a "feeler" post. I'll see if I can dig up a few more shots of the place.
Never been to Ginko in Washington. Until now, I'd never heard of it.
All petrified trees are interesting- sorry to have missed Ginko.
