The Petrified Forest

Our last stop in Napa Valley was to visit The Petrified Forest, which is a Redwood forest where the trees were petrified by a volcano many years ago.

One of the many neat looking trees we saw

The forest was really quiet and peaceful and we had the trail all to ourselves. Ella loved the adventure!

This is the natural state of the petrified tree trunks

And how they look after being cleaned off
This shows one of the excavation sites and the process they go through to dig up the petrified trunks
My awesome little explorer!

What a great day we had in Napa!
