But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
The Arizona Petrified Forest National Park is located in the northeastern part of Arizona about 25 miles east of Holbrook, Arizona. It is a fascinating place to visit abundant with geographical history. The Painted Desert is adjacent to the Petrified Forest, so it is a great opportunity to visit both historical sites in a single trip.
Some visitors expect to see green forests that once stood but instead find stone logs and log fragments in what otherwise is a featureless section of Arizona desert.
Petrified Forest National Park is located east of Flagstaff, Arizona, right off Interstate 40. The park is best viewed by car running north to south about 22 miles long. You will see an array of colors and geological formations that seem to “brighten up” with an early morning sun or and evening setting sun. Anytime is a good time to see the sights here. More towards the south end of the park you start to see the petrified trees that are now lying on the ground broken into many pieces. Your drive will end in the parking lot of the south end Visitors Center. There are lots of petrified trees here still in big pieces. This is a very beautiful and interesting place.
