Stoned Again

Petrified wood

Can't avoid the rocks in this part of the world. It might be a bit weak on the vegetation but the rock-life more than makes up for it. In Arizona the rock seems almost organic and in terms of the petrified wood, some of it was once organic.
We're winding down on our trip here.

Petrified wood is one of those things that can be explained to me how it is formed, but I still marvel at it when I see it and hold it, as if it is a fairy tale come to life, like holding Cinderella's glass slipper.

Jud that is so well said. I too marveled at the wood. Some of it looked so, um, wooden, that I was ready to throw it on a bonfire and watch it burn.
