Arizona - cliffs, petrified forest, painted desert, gems embedded in huge rocks.
Skyline in the Western end of Arizona
Cross-sections of petrified wood - neither of these species exist today.
Petrified tree trunk, in the park off Hwy 40 - minerals infused and replaced the wood fibers
Bathtub *full* of gems - better than bubbles!
I have *got* to come back and spend time in the high country soon - horse-back riding, hiking...
