Petrified Forest National Park was established in 1906 to protect one of the world's largest and most colorful deposits of petrified wood. The fossil record contained in this 225 million-year-old geologic layer called the “Chinle Formation” allows a fascinating look at the fauna and flora of the late Triassic Period. This colorful sediment, also known at the Painted Desert, spans the 28-mile journey through the park.
