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!

      This only takes a few minutes to see but amazing if you think about how old it is and how long it has been there entombed. 🙂

    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!!!

        I’m glad I’m not a violent person. Not even during military training and understanding the enemy, did I feel like hurting someone. You can read between the lines on my feelings when I found out what happened at the Capitol and saw the footage. Thank goodness I was on the trail and out birding. I didn’t think I could hate someone ever, but I can say Trump changed that for me!

        Um yeah and now he is impeached for a 2nd time. I hope he get indicted in multiple states for many things but most of all tried and convicted of Treason! It is no longer just enough to say he needs to leave the White House.

        Me too! The worst in American history. It will be interesting to see how those books are written accurately. I’m looking forward to a covid-free world again. Praying the positive and death numbers start descending in the upcoming months. See what I did there Mr. Accounting Prof? LOL 🙂 Staying POSITIVE!
