Going around looking at the forest, it is hard to believe this was once a floodplain. Once a living space for creatures of all kinds it is loaded with fossils also. While there are many petrified forests in the world we were told this one is the only one with such dramatic coloration. This is due to the minerals around when the petrification process occurred.
