Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona

Petrified Forest National Park is an American national park in Navajo and Apache counties in northeastern Arizona.

It takes at least 45 minutes to drive the 28-mile road through the park, but visitors should allow at least a couple of hours to drive Blue Mesa Road, take a hike, and stop at the spectacular viewpoints along the way.

It’s open daily from 8:00-5:00 pm. Reservations are not required, and masks are required if you’re going inside a building.

We entered the Painted Desert side of the park, stopped at the cafe for some Navajo Fry Bread before hitting the trail.

At the halfway point, there was an old 1933 Studebaker, remembering those who made their way out west on Route 66.

From that point there scenery was more on the petrified wood and petroglyphs.

We were able to see more petrified wood up close, before heading back to Sedona.
