I recently got back from a vacation to the western United States. This is one of three upcoming posts relating to that vacation. First, the most picture-intense post…
I fell in love with the petrified wood ALL over the place in Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in Utah. Logs, stumps, branches, pieces — tumbled all over the place. Click on the image to see it larger.
Collecting wasn’t allowed at the park, but I later purchased several pieces that were gathered outside the boundaries of the park — the last picture in the gallery above.
I hope to make the cab into a necklace or bracelet. There’s at least 4 projects ahead of this in the queue, however. The large chunk (20 pounds) will become a focal point in a rock garden in my backyard.
