The park that is more than petrified stumps
This is a park with a mixture of features to go see. We only had a couple of hours and due to a lot of driving through the park, that wasn’t sufficient time to really get absorbed into the landscape.
In addition to the petrified logs, this park is known for a variety of fossil finds, petroglyphs and archeological ruins. The trees are dated back to 225 million years ago.
Tip: there is both a north and south end of the park. Depending on which direction you’re traveling (east or west) you can enter for either end and not need to backtrack. That’ll provide you with much more site seeing and wandering time.
