Day 8 - Petrified Forest National Park

Today, we left Holbrook and were off to the Petrified Forest National Park. We bought a National Parks annual pass since we'll be visiting other NP's across the country. We didn't buy one at the Grand Canyon because it was a "free" day at National Parks.

Cool piece of petrified wood - 225 million years old!

On the way to Albuquerque, we saw many signs for the Sky City Casino saying you'd get $10 free slot play if you signed up for their player's club. So of course we stopped and after using the $10 each, we cashed out up $14, enough for dinner!

Welcome to New Mexico!
