For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead…Romans 1:20

There are few places on earth where the grandeur of God’s creation is so uniquely showcased as the state of Arizona. We arrived in Phoenix Monday after four and a half loooooong days of driving…and driving…and driving.

We took a break from the travel Sunday to spend several hours enjoying the natural beauty of the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Park. The Painted Desert is characterized by colorful bands of sedimentary rock which adds color to the arid landscape.

While Arizona’s forest of fossilized word is well know, petrified wood has been found throughout the world, including Prince William Forest Park in Virginia.

Enjoy the photos.
