Petrified Forest National Park

Thursday, September 4, 2014
We are huge lover of nature and we especially love National Parks. The Petrified Forest National Park is a sight to behold. It really isn't so much a forest of trees, but more a forest of tree fossils.  This Park contains one of the world's largest and most colorful concentrations of petrified wood,  badlands of the Painted Desert, historic structures, archeological sites, and displays of 225 million year old fossils, this is a surprising land of scenic wonders and fascinating science. We drove and  spent about 3 hours beholding nature's wonders.  We stopped frequently to take photos of the Native American rock art.  There was a sense of spiritual peacefulness in the absence of noise.  Be sure not to pick up petrified wood as it's bad luck according to the legend. Anyone who takes wood from the park will be cursed.  It's also illegal. This is a must to see.  Remember, this is a desert and it can be dry so bring fluids with you.

This petrified wood is mostly from the Late Triassic period, about 225 million years ago. That means some of these trees were around before the time of Dinosaurs.

  5. Ancient relics like that must really be preserved for future generations to see. I wonder if the name of this park was intentionally created for the "scare" factor so visitors will not take away any piece of wood from the park.
