Macro Monday- Petrified Wood

Lisa is the fabulous creator and host!

During our vacation we took the time to visit the Petrified National Forest and Painted Desert. The wood is beautiful and it's quite remarkable to think there was a forest there once, in the middle of what is now desert. We visited several parts of the forest but I found the Crystal Forest to be my favorite.

This photo is of a close up of one of the many logs. The colors are amazing. There were some that were purple and green, blue and white and many reds and golds.
