Over Christmas, my family traveled to Arizona to visit my parents. On the way home we visited the Petrified Forest, one of America's most ancient expressions of nature's artwork. Scientists say that the trees that were fossilized are around 225 million years old.
I have never touched anything that old, so I just had to do it.
Here are a couple more pictures of the surrounding hills. Over time, water has washed away the ground to reveal the layers of rock underneath. Isn't it beautiful?
What does nature inspire you to create?
