Walking to the Angel’s Playground in the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona.

Millions of years ago this was a forest. Then became a seabed. The tree trunks survived and petrified to become rocks, some with precious gems forming inside. Angel’s Playground has a bunch of these tree-like rocks, and we saw a few which had knots. It’s weird touching something that looks like a log but feels like stone.
