“Historic Petrified Forest Lodge”

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 stucco façade 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.

A classic southwestern style structure. Impressive inside and out. Walk around the back side and you will see where the guest rooms were. There is an artist in residence program so check out the exhibit.

The lodge is pretty, but the ride through the painted desert is what is really beautiful. Gorgeous.

Worth the stop. The park headquarters was designed by Richard Neutra (mid-century architect) and the Painted Desert Inn provides an awesome background for photographs.
