Puerco River, Northern Arizona
These photos were taken in autumn along the Puerco River in
northern Arizona
. This section of river actually exists within Petrified
Forest National Park, and these fall colors stand in stark contrast to the
much drier Painted Desert that exists in better-known parts of the park.

(for more typical "Painted Desert" type photos of the Petrified Forest click HERE).
