On our drive west from Santa Fe to Sedona we stopped at Petrified Forest National Park. It was such an interesting area to visit.
We did a few short hikes and got to see so much petrified wood.
We learned a lot about how petrified wood is formed and why there is so much in this area.
The visitors centers were nice and informative. While we would have loved more time to explore I don’t think you need more than half a day to see this park.
We only spent a few hours exploring because we needed to drive further west to get to our campsite in Sedona.
