I thought there were some beautiful sand colors in many of the geological formations that reminded me of the Painted Canyon.
The North Petrified Forest also offers a scenic view of the badlands. Notice all the petrified wood stumps in the foreground and middle of the picture? They can blend right into the landscape like boulders. If I had little kids with me I would have played a game "Who can spot the most petrified wood" as it can be tricky!
