Travel Haiku - Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona (The United States)
Poem By john tiong chunghoo
hard and unrelenting
the piece of 225 million years
under my nails
With one of the world's largest collections of petrified wood (the logs here are so hard they can be cut only with a diamond-tipped saw) and fossils from the Late Triassic period, Petrified Forest National Park's a great playground for science buffs and adventurers alike. Trek the multicolored landscape of the Painted Desert or the chalky moonlike surface of the Blue Mesa on foot or by horse.
