The Alluring Park Along Route 66 That’s Full Of Unexpected And Ancient Beauty

Geological wonders thrive in the Arizona horizon. Iconic formations like the Monument Valley mittens, the Grand Canyon’s depths, and Sedona’s striking red formations all help define our state’s landscape. Another place rich in geological (and historic) beauty is our very own Petrified Forest National Park.

Petrified Forest National Park is located 26 miles east of Holbrook along Interstate 40. You can find details about visiting on the National Park’s website.
