The Tepees under a beautiful blue sky. June 13, 2011.

The Tepees is an area of the Petrified Forest National Park dominated by cone-shaped rock formations.  It’s in the southern section of the park between Newspaper Rock and Blue Mesa.

Beautiful colors all around. June 13, 2011.

The Tepees contain layered blues, purples and grays in addition to the colors found in other portions of the park.  That day’s clear blue sky (with a few white clouds) only added to the beauty of the Painted Desert.
