Petrified Forest National Park

4.4
Petrified Forest National Park presents a surreal landscape of large deposits of petrified wood. Some of these fossils have formed pointy hills, such as The Teepees; others have created fields of sculptures, and still others have helped shape rugged badlands. The park is one of the smaller in the collection of national parks, so many visitors use the 45 km (28 mi) drive through it to admire the deep red hues of wood turned to stone. A series of short trails provide the chance to stretch legs with a quick hike or bike ride. Pronghorns and mule deer traipse through the park, and birders can spot raptors, songbirds, and ground birds.
