Petrified Forest National Monument is located near Holbrook in northeastern Arizona.  It’s no surprise that the park is known for its Late Triassic fossils, especially trees.  What does surprise, and pleasantly, is the spare beauty and geological formations of the area (The Painted Desert is adjacent to the park).  We spent an afternoon marveling at the abundance and substance of petrified wood strewn across the landscape, the fresh coyote tracks, and the impossibly distant horizon.  And yes, that is snow in the second photo.  We traveled to Arizona at the end of December and encountered snow in most of the places we visited.

The WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes was the inspiration for this post.
