Blue Mesa Trail

Petrified Forest National Park, AZ

On February 21, 2023 Kim and I visited Petrified Forest National Park on our way to Arizona. After the Puerco Pueblo Trail we stopped at the Blue Mesa Trail. The landforms here were simply amazing … the pictures don’t do them justice. Our next stop was the Crystal Forest Trail.
