I'm so glad that got this app for my tour of the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. It made my travels through the park so informed and enjoyable. Easy to follow. The music that played between the narrative was perfect. The narrative was informative and funny at times. I will highly recommend this app.

Very entertaining!
