Petrified Forest National Park
Petrified Forest is full of magical elements. Things are whimsical, odd and yet in perfect harmony together. Car wreckage, a desert inn from the early 20th century, pueblo built nearly a thousand years ago, silicified forest debries from hundreds of million years ago… This is a place where human history meets nature evolution. Walking in this desert, I felt the clock was turning back.
