The Painted Desert was just stunning, you couldn't believe that the colours(pinks/browns/rust/plums/lilacs) were real. We saw some more ancient Pueblo ruins, and also some fascinating Petroglyphs - rock art done by Native American's in 1250 AD. We also had a good look at the huge chunks of petrified wood around the park, some pretty colours in the wood too. We are staying the night at the KOA Holbrook http://www.koa.com/where/az/03103/ stil in Arizona. Holbrook is a kitschy little town that used to be big when Route 66 was in its heyday.
