We visited the Curio Bay petrified forest. 180 million year old trees! Photo of me by my friend Chris.

petrified wood like this is incredibly rare.

The entire logs and stumps were preserved because the silification was within a matter of weeks or months after the flood

Petrified tree, horizontal. Longer horizontal petrified tree. Information sign about the forest. Me walking across the area.
