      San Juan Badlands, New Mexico | San Juan Basin | Ceja Pelon One of the largest concentrations of petrified wood in the southwestern United States is here. Some of the largest logs are over 30 feet in length with fractured sections still in alignment. This "bald mesa edge" is twisted and fractured into all sorts of winding ramparts. Bonsai ponderosa with exposed roots seem to grow magically out of bare rock. Ceja means "eyebrow" and is used to describe a mesa edge, while Pelon means "bald".
