Petrified Forest National Park is in northeastern Arizona. To its south, the Rainbow Forest is full of colorful petrified wood. It is home to the Rainbow Forest Museum, with its paleontology exhibits.
This is a very quick stop and your first look at the painted desert hills. This viewpoint is located just past the Visitor Center.
This short walking trail (1-mile out and back) starts at Tawa Point and turns around at the Painted Desert Inn and Kachina Point.
