The Holbrook (Ariz.) Tribune-News is reporting developments in store for the Petrified Forest National Park, namely:
— The Painted Desert Inn will reopen after nearly 18 months of renovations.
— “Along with the inn’s reopening in 2006, the park will open a Route 66 pullout. This point overlooks the Painted Desert, the inn and the original roadbed of Route 66 through the park, along with the original telephone poles that ran along side of the highway.”
