#SundayStills: Nature is Sure #Mysterious

I agree with Terri, nature is mysterious. It can turn such thing as a tree into a fossil if it lived long enough.

Looking at the topic this week, which is mysterious, I thought about my visit to the Petrified Forest State Park in 2021. Note that this is the state park in Utah, not the national park in Arizona. Petrified Forest State Park is much smaller but it’s still an awesome place to visit.

We paid our entrance fee, parked the car, and spent a few hours exploring the park on foot, which is kind of mandatory given the petrified forest is located along a single trail.

It’s sure a mystery how these trees managed to survive this long as all around them, civilization thrived. I’d bet these trees have seen things, encountered plenty of natural events, and probably once lived with dinosaurs. It’s just amazing to think of all the things that have happened to these trees to have it survive to today. Nature is sure a wonderful mystery.

  1. I’m glad you distinguished between the two locations, Yinglan. I love this post because nature is truly a mystery but when you mention that these trees may have seen dinosaurs, that to me is a wonderful mystery. It’s great that you make time to get out and hike these trails! Happy Halloween.

    1. I didn’t know there’s a Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona until someone pointed it out. I’d love to go to the National park one day.
      It’s amazing what these trees have been through and still survived. I’m so glad I found this off-the-beaten-path place.
