In northeastern Arizona, took famous Route 66 to the park. The park is huge with 26 miles of paved roads. We hiked the Crystal Forest Trail and the Giant Log Trail, 1.5 miles full of colorful petrified wood, logs and crystals. One giant petrified log called “Old Faithful” was almost ten feet wide. We saw petroglyphs of Newspaper Rock, an old ruined village, the eroded colorful badlands and many cool fossil exhibits. Matt was appointed the trailblazer to keep on the lookout for poisonous snakes and insects. Holly purchased a large piece of petrified piece of wood at the visitor center that she uses s a paper weight.
