The Crystal Forest is a section of Petrified Forest National Park with a landscape dotted with petrified logs.
A century of collecting (before the park was established) has removed many of the logs, especially those which contained quartz crystals.
The trail through the Crystal Forest leads past logs show a rainbow of colors. Many of the logs plainly show what was once the bark of the trees, but they are all amazing.
Reds and whites are fairly common in the petrified wood, but blues and yellows can also be seen.
