Petrified Forest National Park Amazed me!

March 28, 2022 This week was very busy after the slow winter we had.  First, we moved just north of Phoenix to Peoria to a section of land owned by Arizona Land Trust.  A permit for the year costs $15 and allows you to park on this land for up to 14 days per year so that’s just what we did.  We were parked in a desert with Saguaros all around us before dark.  We were even  able to fill up our water tank for free at Lake Pleasant just a few miles down the road.  We had great cell reception and the site…
