Painted and Petrified

A few more photos from our journey out west...Libby's choices for places to stop were beautiful.
(My favorite stop was a 7-11 in Albuquerque, which served the BEST coffee I have ever had.)

This doesn't look petrified.

This looks painted.  Those pink hills are far away.

L sits safely on the wall.

T assures me it is not a sheer drop.

Other colors.

Evidence of water run-off.

A beautiful formation.

Where the petrified wood is.

Scenic Overlook.

There's some.

And more.

Examining scraps of a former forest.

Look happy, L!

That's better!

Just sitting on a petrified log.

Pretty amazing.

Admiring the rings.

This would make good outdoor furniture.

Camouflage fail.

Our last view before finding the back exit.

You take the coolest geology vacations, MacBeth! I too admire Libby's taste in stops.
