September 15th - part 1 more signs, the Petrified Forest, & Wigwam Motel

Drive-by shot of a muffler man for Aunt Nancy

One of my favorite signs!

Hieroglyphs in the Petrified Forest National Park

Village remains

Knowing nothing about this "petrified forest" previously...we were looking forward to finally seeing big, green clusters of trees again, it had been a long time since leaving the mid-west that we had a "fix" of green landscape. Ha!

The landscape was very other-worldly. It looked like a different planet.

The original route of historic 66.
At this stop we met a woman who was traveling with her husband in a 30 ft long 5th wheel, she literally could not contain her chuckles, she was amazed at how small our camper was :)

It went right through the park. The road disappeared but the telephone poles remain.

Back on the road

Stopped by the Wigwam Motel

The lady in the office gave us a key so we could peak inside. Wish we could have stayed here, but every wigwam is reserved months in advance!
