Returning this blog to our travels of last summer, we now leave the verdant side behind, watching Mount Rainier settle into the horizon as we head east. We made a brief stop at Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park, near Vantage, Washington to acclimatize to our new environment.
Perched above the Columbia River, we find this park rocks!
Because this was a brief stopover and because the air was oppressive, we didn't take the hiking trail to see more examples of petrified wood. Another time.
