Historic Painted Desert Inn
Forest Petrified National Park
Arizona
May 2022

In its almost 100 years overlooking the Painted Desert, the inn has undergone many changes. The original building from the early 1920s was made of petrified wood. Today's adobe facade dates to the 1930s renovation of the Painted Desert Inn.

The national historic landmark functions only as a museum now, with no overnight accommodation and food service. Displays inside highlight the building's history, Route 66, and the Civilian Conservation Corps. There are also restored murals by Hopi artist Fred Kabotie. (NPS)

Prints are available through my Pixels - Fine Art America site. See more of my Petrified Forest National Park photography here.
