Petrified Forest, Part 5

The section of Petrified Forest National Park north of Interstate 40 extends into an area called the Painted Desert.  The park's main road includes several places to pull off and view the desert.  I took this picture from Whipple Point.

This shot is from Pintado Point, with Pilot Rock in the background, just right of center.

A short side road leads northward to Chinde Point, from which I took this picture.

This shot is also from Chinde Point, in a direction a bit eastward from that of the picture just above.

The last place I stopped in the park was the Painted Desert Inn, which is a National Historic Landmark in its own right.
