Visit Blue Mesa Road Vista

Thursday, July 17, 2014
Let your jaw drop at the Petrified Forest National Park.  Adjacent to the Painted Desert - this is Arizona scenery at its finest. In my opinion, it is breath-taking as the Grand Canyon, and a little less crowded. There are a lot of different stations, but there are three that are especially awesome: (1) the Blue Mesa Trail, (2) the Newspaper Rock and (3) the Painted Desert.

On this post I will share my photos from Blue Mesa Road. It is a 15 minute loop road with multiple stopping points for a scenic view. The Blue Mesa Road, which you'll just drive by as you pass through the park, you can pull off to look at them more if you want.  They are mounds of beautifully layered colored rock. We loved this adventure! Driving through the park was quite convenient and everything was so beautiful.

The Tepees : Commonly seen rock formations alongside the main road.
