Painted Desert

When we were looking through the guide books last night we decided to give the crater a miss! Instead we went to the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest, it was a good choice. I did offer to drive today but Dave said he'd seen enough petrified things without joining them, haha how I laughed!
We are now sitting in a lovely restaurant we found in Flagstaff enjoying a glass of wine and waiting for our dinner to arrive. Tomorrow we are driving back to Las Vegas for our last night. Diane we will probably drive across the Hoover bridge traffic allowing. I've still got my winnings tucked away so plan on a trip into the casino, not that you can avoid it!
A few pictures taken today.
The desert.

A tepee, this is a natural formation, aren't the colours amazing?

The photo below is of a petrified tree!

This has been our seventh road trip in the US. At the start of the holiday we convinced ourselves that it will be our last, today we've started talking about where to go next! So watch this space. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

  1. What a holiday! How can any of us compete with your fantastic photos. Does Dave regret you getting an iPhone? Looking forward to catching up. X
