26-27 MAR: PETRIFIED FOREST NATIONAL PARK

Petrified Forest seems to be all about contrast, pattern, and color…and very unique terrain.   The terrain itself has varied hues – ranging from white to gray to purple to red…this is paralleled in the kaleidoscope of colors in the petrified logs.

Although, I photographed several locations in the park, all the elements come together at Blue Mesa…where the terrain is almost otherworldly.
