The Petrified Forest and Painted Desert

In our quest to visit all of the National Parks we headed for the Petrified Forest National Park and Painted Desert in northeast Arizona when we left Fountain Hills. They cover a large area and while they weren't the most exciting places we've been we still found them both to be worth a stop. While exploring them we stayed in Holbrook, Arizona where we came across an old motel which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It doesn't appear to be in business anymore but they have preserved it much as it probably was years ago, right down to the old cars parked in front of each room.
