"The size of the petrified logs indicates that as living trees, these stone giants were over 100 feet tall, and perhaps a thousand or more years old." Highlights include a nature trail, the Earth Science Museum, which contains a large map with examples of petrified wood found in every state, foreign petrified wood, plant life through the ages via a variety of leaves, fruits, cones and bark, fossil woods, and such fossils as dinosaur footprints, whale bones and turtle shells, gem fluming, a campground, and a gift shop.
