A Marvelous Setting for Nature's Jewels

Postmarked 31 August 1942
Gallup, New Mexico

AGATIZED LOGS, PETRIFIED FOREST, ARIZ. There are hundreds of acres of agataized pine and spruce trees which lie tumbled over the slopes in this vast basin--once the bed of an ancient sea. The surrounding mesas with their bands of different colors and their slopes seamed by the erosion of  countless ages make a marvelous setting for this collection of Nature's jewels.
Wilhelmina and I are enjoying a trip to Grand Canyon. It is nice to see her again. The scenery is very beautiful here. / Best wishes / Emma Benton 
Very few days pass without me missing Arizona. This is not one of the scenes I think of during those moments.
