Kyle Magnuson (United States of America):
The Petrified Forest is sureal. You might imagine the surface of another planet would look like this. The landscape is desolate yet beautiful. The fascinating petrified wood is scattered everywhere. The Petrified wood being hundreds of millions of years old it's a humbling display of our ancient world. The park could be seperated into two unique sections, the petrified wood landscape in the south and the Painted Desert in the northern section. You need at least 2-3 hrs to visit the park properly. Enjoy this wonderous place, and if you go in the summer bring an umbrella and sun tan lotion.
