Petrified Forest National Park

The park offers a variety of off trail and backcountry hiking among the remnants of a prehistoric forest of colorful specimens from small shards to massive trunks.

As the forest died or was knocked down by wind or water, many trees were carried downstream and buried by layers of sediment. The logs soaked up groundwater and silica from volcanic ash and over time crystallized into quartz.


Walnut Creek National Monument – Ancient Cliff Dwellings

In the densely-wooded plateau country about 10 miles southeast of downtown Flagstaff, Arizona there is a carved 600-foot-deep canyon. During the 12th to 13th centuries, cliff dwelling Sinagua Indians constructed  alcoves in the sandstone along the steep well-protected ledges.
