A Panoramic View from the Rainbow Forest
A Photographic Tour Of Arizona's
Petrified Forest National
This is the Crystal Forest. Many logs here used
contain pockets of quartz crystals, druzy quartz, and other minerals.
many inconsiderate people have chipped away or stolen these logs. I
see many crystal logs left. These logs that have fractured like
are still pretty cool.
This picture gives you an idea of the incredible amount of wood just
on the ground. Truly awe-inspiring for a dyed-in-the-wool
The Giant Logs trail is a nice walk, but
by this time you'll be burned out on so much wood! Anyway here's
a few pictures from the trail.
And what tour would be complete without some pictures of the famous
Logs? The colors in these logs are truly spectacular. Many of them have
all the colors of the rainbow represented. I see yellow, red, purple,
green, and blue in the log above.
Of course there's some huge logs at the rainbow forest too.
And more rainbow wood!
We also dug some Arizona Wood at a ranch a few miles outside of
the Monument. They have a little Petrified Forest themselves!
a few more pics of their Petrified Garden, as Mrs. Murphy calls it:
I hope you enjoyed your tour!
