Petrified Forest: Fossilised tree
1500 hectares of petrified plant life comes under the Protected Monuments of Nature in the Petrified Forest. Tourists flock to the natural monuments that are simply prehistoric fossils of trees from the Caenophytic era. They are formed when the pyroclastic clouds of erupting volcanoes in the region, cover the vegetation in volcanic ash. Silicon dioxide from the lava mixes with the ash and petrification then begins.
