Soon after leaving Gallup, we crossed the state line into Arizona. We continued on the scenic road to Holbrook, only 96 miles away. When we arrived, we went straight to the mechanic who inspected the Mustang and fixed a few things. We dropped our stuff off at the motel and got some lunch. We then backtracked to the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert National Park and toured the beautiful cliffside road of the Painted Desert. In the Petrified Forest, large logs of wood turned into stone line the now empty plains. A huge summer thunderstorm hit Holbrook when we arrived so we ended our day indoors.
