I never did see the formation in the picture but I was off the trail for most of the hike.

Easy trail following a wash. Very interesting rock formations at this eastern entrance to Bisti. At the 3 foot drop off, cross the wash and follow the trail leading up to higher ground. Great photography awaits you. The heavily weathered petrified wood is all over the place, including the wash. Leave it where you find it, rock shops have tons of the stuff and it's usually in better shape.

The badlands are beautiful and alien. You really feel like you're on another planet. The hike is very long and has a lot of ups and downs to see cool stuff. Stay in the main washes (the parking lot entrance) and you'll be able to see a lot. A tip though, I went after it rained and the ground was like a sponge. The mud was very slippery and there aren't many places to kick your shoes clean. Go when it's been dry a while because the hills are made of dirt and will be unclimbable when wet. Being a lunch and start early!
