Jasper Forest Overlook, Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona USA
Arizona
The Petrified Forest National Park is located in north, central Arizona high on the Colorado Plateau. This panorama shows the Jasper Forest overlook, an huge area with thousands of exposed petrified logs. The Park is internationally known for its colorful late Triassic Period fossils in the clay of the Chinle Formation. In addition, there are ancient Indian ruins that span over 13, 000 years of history. The National Park is located in the Little Colorado River Valley National Heritage Area in which conservation, interpretation and other activities are managed by partnerships among federal, state, and local governments and the private sector. On clear days you can see over 100 miles in every direction. The Colorado Plateau is a mainly flat area at over 5000 feet above sea level. Winter temperatures at the Park are very cold and Summer temperatures are often over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The rocks you see scattered around in this panorama are all pieces of petrified wood.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
