Local Area

Petrified Forest National Park including portions of the Painted Desert

A land of contrasts--Petrified Forest National Park provides visitors views to the beginning of dinosaurs, prehistoric peoples and modern wildlife. The remains of an ancient forest lie scattered across northeastern Arizona. Fossils of tall trees, strange ferns, large reptiles, small sharks and early dinosaurs provide clues to life 225 million years ago. Prehistoric people settled in the area about 6,000 years ago. Petrified wood provided a natural resource that could be used or traded. Evidence still exists showing the civilization was in the area in 1400 AD.


Canyon de Chelly

Venture into a region of unsurpassed beauty and excellent climate filled with an abundance of colorful canyons and many other natural wonders. At the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, view glorious stone monuments and prehistoric Indian dwellings within the steep canyon walls. The scenic north rim drive offers four lookout areas; the south rim drive features seven. Stop by the Visitor's Center at the intersection of the rims for detailed maps and information.


Historic Route 66

In the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Route 66 was also known "The Mother Road" and "The Main Street of America." This narrow strip of asphalt was a symbol of hope for farmers fleeing the dust bowl and soldiers starting a new life after World War II. It was also a symbol of adventure for travelers answering the call of the west. Route 66 goes through downtown Holbrook, where period restaurants, motels, and shops still offer the weary traveler old west friendliness.


Meteor Crater

Visit the best preserved meteoric crater on earth. Measuring 4,150 feet from rim to rim, three miles in circumference and 570 feet deep, this lunar-like landscape site, created 49,000 years ago, is used to train United States astronauts.
