Northeast Arizona Pictures
Painted Desert

Arizona's Painted Desert gets its name from bands of red, white and yellow sediments and bentonite clay of the Chinle rock formation, exposed by erosion. These colorful formations stretch from about 30 miles north of Cameron near the Grand Canyon, and run southeast, ending just beyond the Petrified Forest, which the National Park Service administers together with the Painted Desert.
