Collection: Dark Sky Parks

Limited Edition (150)

Petrified Forest National Park, nestled in northeastern Arizona, is renowned not only for its vast deposits of petrified wood but also for its mesmerizing night skies. As dusk falls and the sun dips below the horizon, the park transforms into a nocturnal wonderland, offering visitors an unparalleled view of the cosmos. Unlike the urban settings where artificial light masks the celestial bodies, the remote location of the park ensures that the night sky remains unblemished by light pollution, making it a sanctuary for stargazers and astronomers alike.
At night, the park's already otherworldly landscape takes on an ethereal quality. The silhouettes of petrified logs, some over 225 million years old, lie scattered across the terrain, telling tales of a prehistoric world. As darkness envelops the park, the sky becomes a canvas painted with constellations, planets, and the milky white streak of the Milky Way. The constellations, which have guided travelers and inspired stories for millennia, appear so close you could almost reach out and touch them. Shooting stars occasionally streak across the sky, offering a brief, spectacular show of natural fireworks.
