The Painted Desert in Arizona runs 120 miles in length, is 60 miles wide and covers 7500 square miles. It runs from the Grand Canyon area, the four corners to the Petrified Forest. The Petrified Forest/Painted Desert was a favorite of Mrs. Postcard’s. I thought it was alright. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see either. Maybe that’s just me. But we were passing through the area and it was worth seeing.
