Petrified Tree
Roosevelt Country
Yellowstone National Park

Driving east out of Mammoth Hot Springs takes you from Mammoth Country to Roosevelt Country. The sign, above, explains this 20 foot high phenomenon. There is a large group of petrified trees farther east on the Northeast Entrance Road. I didn't see a road or trail to them. The middle photo is not a petrified forest. It's the result of the 1988 fire on the opposite hill. Digital raw images.
