Jasper Forest

Jasper Forest, in Petrified Forest National Park:
 

 
Many of these stone tree trunk fragments reminded me of redwood trees. For some this park in Eastern Arizona is a bit off the beaten path, but worth the time if you’re in the area.
 
Have a Great Day!

White Pocket

Twisted rock in the White Pocket formation in Arizona:

 

White Pocket is located in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument.  It’s somewhat difficult to reach due to long stretches of roads with deep sand.  This formation is south east of it’s more famous cousin, The Wave.

We invite those of you who are into Instagram to follow us there.  Just search for utah3d.

Hope you enjoy this “visit”!

Petrified Forest

For this panorama we’ve gone south of the border (Utah’s border that is) to the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona:

 

It is estimated that these fossilized trees are some 200 million years old. Over time the wood has been replaced by quartz.

Have a Great Day!
