The Tepees



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

The Tepees is a section of cone-shaped multicolored rock formations in the southern portion of the Petrified Forest National Park. The Tepees contain layers of blue and gray in addition to the reds, whites and pinks seen in other parts of the Painted Desert.

beautiful mounds in the desert, I am wondering if there is a path to the mounds and one to the top? is it possible to climb those mounds?

The mounds are very unique.

They have not met me, and I have never met them before.

You got some really nice photos on this trip George. As I said, I remember seeing these sights when I was a very small child back in the 1950's.
