Geocache Description:

Easy virtual cache in Petrified Forest NP at one of the most popular stopping points.

Other than at the South entrance, Crystal Forest has the best collection of petrified wood in the park (I think). Be sure to take the .75 mile loop trail and check out all the cool wood. Just be sure to not take any with you when you leave as there is not only a fine but you will also have bad luck. If you don't believe me, just go the Visitor's Center and see all the letters and returned rock of people who took some home with them. To get credit for this cache please email me the answer to the following question: According to the sign in the photo below, how many years ago were the trees here alive and standing?
