Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona

Jasper Forest, Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona
A prime mystery of geology - thousands of acres of agatized logs that lie prone on the ground, in a vast basin once the bed of an ancient sea.  The cross sections of these logs reveal brilliant colors - every tint of the rainbow.

This National Park, established by President Theodore Roosevelt on Dec. 8th, 1906, contains the greatest and most colorful concentration of Petrified Wood known in the world.  At the Rainbow Forest Museum, exhibits include beautiful polished sections of Agatized Wood, Fossil, Reptiles and Amphibian Skulls, Bones and Teeth.
