The Painted Desert

Friday, June 13, 2014
We decided to go visit here on our recent  random road trip in Arizona. The Painted Desert provides a striking landscape that is both colorful and peaceful. It took millions upon millions of years for nature to create this natural canvas of unimaginable design. The park is very easy to find, right off  Highway 40W. I thought we had seen every kind of rock formation and color of rock until we saw the Painted Desert. The sun was out and the colors just stood out more. This is not an area you want to hurry through. There are many pull offs where you can get out of your car and marvel at what you are looking at. You can see forever into the distance, and the peacefulness and quiet is amazing. Great place to visit.  Month of May is a good time to visit because there are few tourists and you can get through the park easily.

This desert is famous for its striking bands of colors.



God is such a great Painter!

  4. Beautiful photos! Would love to visit Arizona and hike there someday since hubby went to grad school in that state. We need to schedule properly as it could be scorching hot though. Seems like you visited at the perfect time!
