Geocache Description:

While there is a lot of desert that looks painted, this is the official one in Petrified Forest NP.

Stop here for one of the best vistas of the Painted Desert. On a good day you can see all the way to the San Fransisco Peaks near Flagstaff and to Navajo Mountain near Lake Powell. To get credit for this cache please email me the answer to the following question: According to the sign in the photo below, what here is the purest in the continental US?

Also, please post your photos of the painted desert if you have them.
