Today we went out to look for petrified wood in the desert. Of course we live in the high desert so we are use to desert areas. I still find them fascinating.
If you look right in the middle of the picture you can make out a green area down in a ravine. The ravine is the little Colorado river. It looked so pretty against the background of the reddish rocks and earth.
We are headed back to the road and it is along a ravine where the Little Colorado River flows. We are traveling along the edges of it. We are not on any road, we are using a 4X4 to travel to areas where petrified wood is found.
This is a closer look at the ravine. It is deeper than it looks. My honey jokingly told me I should go out on one of the boulders closer to the edge to take a picture. Of course he was teasing as I have problems with heights. So this is as close as I can get to take a picture. The rocks were unique looking, or at least I thought so. It was a fun trip. I did not do much rock hounding as it turned really windy. My allergies this time of year and the wind do not go together. So my dog and I sat in the car for most of the time. I enjoyed looking at the sky, clouds and the scenery.
