The 28-mile drive through Petrified Forest National Park (coming in on HWY 40 and exiting on HWY 180) is a not-to-be missed experience. There are frequent turn-offs and photo stops where some of the most breath-taking views can be seen. Lots of well-paved paths make for easy walking. Although you are not permitted to remove any petrified wood from the park, there are gift shops outside the park selling pieces from nearby areas. You'll see colors in the surrounding hills and rocks that you'd swear were photo-shopped if you weren't seeing them with your own eyes. Even if you just drive through without stopping (heaven forbid!) don't miss this if you're in the vicinity.
