Day 2 continues our journey along Route 66 across the state border into Arizona. Our journey ended in Holbrook, but along the way we took a minor detour into the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Parks.
The parks are a surprising land of fascinating features, which includes one of the worlds largest and most colourful concentrations of petrified wood, and the badlands of the Chinale Formation known as the Painted Desert.

Our resting place for the night in Holbrook was the Wigwam Motel. This was quite a fortunate choice as it provided an interesting foreground to a spectacular sunset.
