Painted Desert and Petrified Forrest - part 2

This is Pueblo Puerco, a settlement occupied in the 12th century. It apparently had as many as 100 rooms and was home to about 18 families.

There were many petroglyphs.

The kiva was where the men worked and held religious rituals

I got pretty tired by the end of the trip and these are the only pictures I took in the last 10 miles. Sorry about that. I guess you'll just have to come out here and see for yourself.

There was way more petrified wood then this one.

  1. We practically took the same photos! I can't wait to go back with a motor home so we can stay longer. I loved the ride through the park on the toll road, beautiful.
