The Painted Desert Inn built in 1937-1940. It closed in 1963 and demolition was scheduled in the 1970's. This was protested and then it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. It reopened as a museum in 2006.
The Painted Desert. We weren't there at the right time to capture the light to show the best colors. It was named this because it looks like the colors of a sunset.
