SQUARES – Petrified Tree

Petrified Tree that is tens of millions years old still standing in Yellowstone National Park.

Looking UP at the famous Petrified Tree at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. This tree was once a large redwood tree among a forest of trees before large volcanic eruptions destroyed the habitat. Read more about this famous tree still standing after millions of years at Your Yellowstone Vacation. A fence had to be placed around it so people couldn’t just walk up to it and vandalize it. Sometimes we have to keep the human element out to keep history intact.

So happy to be back for squares in 2021!

  2. One thing for sure, given the petrification process this tree’s remains ain’t likely ever to be destroyed in a fire. Fascinating, truly fascinating!!!
