The Petrified Forest

The Petrified Forest

Day 14 on the bikes, and leaving Gallup we headed west once again into Arizona. taking the scenic route into the Petrified Forest.  The Petrified wood  has crystallized after millions of years of being buried under ash from the near by volcanos. And believe me nothing perpared me for the beauty of this amazing landscape, I can honestly say that this is the most amazing road I have ever riden in my life-time, and I didn't want it to end. The national Park is 28 miles long, the road over looks long distance vistas of the Painted Desert, Agate Bridge, Crystal Forest and trail, Jasper Forest, it has hiking trials, pick nick areas and museums, unfortunately due to our limited traveling time we did not get to see all the forest had to offer, but dissapointed we were not… as arriving in the mid afternoon, the forest shuts at 5pm, so we didn't have much time, but we were fortunate enough to see the forest in all its splendour at sunset….inspiring it was almost as if we were in prehistoric times…
If your planning to make a visit here, I'd give yourself a good day to explore, you will not be disapointed.
