The article focuses on the first geological map published by the Petrified Forest National Park located in Arizona in the world of rocks. It informs that Petrified National Park is best known for colorful deposits of fossil woods and is also a treasure trove for people interested in geology. It mentions that the new map includes a report summarizing the park's geology, and offers colorful photographs of key rock outcrops. It also informs that the new map is garnering lots of interest on the Arizona Geological Survey website with more than 1100 visits in one week.
