We toured the Petrified Forest in Arizona the same trip we made to the Grand Canyon in 2005 This park was simply breath taking. The colors, the size, and the abundance of petrified wood laying on the grounds of what use to be a forest turned desert. There was no charge, you could not pick up any of the petrified wood. So I took pictures and more pictures. You could see pictographs on the huge rocks left there by the Native Americans. There was on there titled the newspaper, it had a lot of pictographs on it. It was very educational. Within the Forest was also what they called the painted desert. The different colors of sand was amazing. At the end of the road, there was a ranger station where you could see the history of the Forest. You could also buy a piece of the petrified wood there. It is a little expensive to buy, but you couldn't pick it up off the ground for yourself. Hmmm.
