“Easy access from the road with paved trails amongst beautiful crystal-like petrified wood.”— R Kahboohigh
The best times to visit would be early morning or late afternoon as the sun provides photographers with excellent shots of the wood as well as beautiful shots of the surrounding landscape. Also, these times of day provide milder temperatures making the trip much more enjoyable.
