The Painted Desert from Nizhoni Point



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Nizhoni Point was the last overlook we visited in the northern (Painted Desert) part of the Petrified Forest National Park. The colors were just as vibrant and breath-taking as they were at the first overlook.

Let me see, says the painter, depending on my mood, a bit of white, a bit of pink, a bit of green. Yes, my painting will be called a bit of everything.
