Before going to the Petrified Forest we visited the Walnut Canyon. There we saw more ancient wallhouses and could follow a trail into the canyon giving us a closer look of their life.
Arriving late at Petrified Forest we took a small trail that showed us a lot of petrified wood. Very impressive! The next morning we went off into the desert for a hike. Our destination was a remote place with a standing petrified tree and we even saw some rock art. For the evening we got a permit for staying in the desert. We packed our backpacks with the necessities for the night and started walking towards the black forest. Camping out in the desert was great and got us some wonderful pictures.
On we go to Momument Valley.
