The Mississippi Petrified Forest is a wonderful and mysterious place. The old and new worlds collide and form a beautiful union. There is a serenity and tranquility that envelope the forest as you explore the living ecosystem and the remnants from the past. There are the sounds of birds and insects singing along the live trees and petrified wood.
Petrified wood is abundant in the forest and is quite colorful. The orange and greens blend in the wood and are in patterns that look like an artist’s painting. The petrified wood also appears to have faces, shapes, and personality. Each piece of petrified wood silently tells its story.
Jess and I enjoyed a wonderful day at this enchanting forest having a picnic and exploring the surrounding path through the forest. We hope that you will visit this mystic forest and experience all of its wonder.
