A Gem of a Hike


Since we were camped nearby, Bobbie and I swung into Escalante Petrified Forest State Park for a short hike through some fossilized trees. Having seen a considerable amount of petrified wood, I was more or less there for the hike. Man-oh-man, did I ever underestimate this place. The grounds were littered with gem quality stones...more colors than a rainbow trout.

Enjoy, and peace out...

  3. You could certainly while away a few hours polishing those stones, there are some beautiful colours. Looking forward to your adventures in Zion.

  4. If you haven't been to Petrified Forest National Park, near Holbrook, Arizona, you would be amazed. Imagine what you saw and more, as far as the eye can see in many places.

  5. ahh, Zion. Such fun. I found some pretty cool petrified wood down in the Escalante canyons, but I was in my pickup, camping in the back with a mattress with a topper. Amazing days, and don't tell anyone, but it wasn't on park land and it wasn't a monument at the time, and I hauled that piece out. Sitting in the yard at the new place now.

  6. I am going to remember the petrified forest hike because the petrified wood looked truly incredible. We are going to stray further south this winter than we ever have before... so I'm making lists of places to see!
