The painted desert was pretty neat looking. However, my favorite portion of this trip was the Blue Mesa. It looked downright other-worldly. The layers of rock colors of this southwestern badlands were due in part because of the environment of the location many years in the past. Did you know that Arizona (or at least that part of it) used to be environmentally similar to what the Amazon is like today? It's hard to imagine when you see how flat it is. The Blue Mesa are a number of hills that show the differences of the layers of soil during a number of historic times. This lead to a really neat stratification of rock. It's hard to describe but extremely awesome.
