Petrified Forest National Park
Just over 25 miles east of Holbrook, AZ on I-40 (exit 311).
The Petrified Forest National Park is a unique area filled with desert landscapes, archeological, paleontologial, and cultural sites,
and most of all, petrified wood. Trees present in the area over 200 million years ago fell and were covered in sediments which
found their way into the cellular structure of the wood. The sediments crystallized over millions of years leaving quartz in the
form of petrified logs. The petrified wood and desert scenery are two of the main highlights visitors to the park can enjoy.
