New friends

  • We met a great family when we arrived at the Petrified Forest on Thursday. The Munday family pulled into the Visitors center as we were. They have been traveling for over 10 months now and are heading back to their The home in Canada. We all hit it off and ended up spending the whole day together, exploring the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. So much fun meeting another family like ours! The boys really hit it off and were having guns fights, Legowars and even became Jr. Rangers together.

  • The Mundays are the first to sign the back of our camper.

  • Wishing the Mundays safe travels!

The Petrified Forest and Painted Desert are really interesting. They made a really big deal about not stealing the petrified wood. They even showed a film of a guy being arrested and handcuffed for stealing the wood. Looking at the hillsides of the forest, you can see what the ravages of what human hands can do. Chunks of wood blasted by dynamite are all over the place.
