old trees and rainbow rocks: the painted desert & the petrified forest



i've been sitting here, looking at these photos for hours trying to figure out just what to say about them. but there's nothing that i can say that the pictures can't say themselves. so i'll be quiet on this one, and let the photos speak for themselves. enjoy!

we were so lucky to be in the right spot at the right time to get these photos of a train traveling on the santa fe railroad. and i loved them all, so instead of sharing one or two of them, i decided to make a gif!
