About the Image(s)

The Petrified Forest NP preserves the largest collection of petrified wood in the world. It is deserving a monument and that's what I tried to portray. The setting should make one think though. What happened to the rest of the tree?

I am told the tree was not cut; splitting occurs naturally, but the rest of the log is no where to be seen.
