The Petrified Forest, Arizona, and Mars

The Martian Chronicles has an interesting recap of a recent geology fieldtrip through Northern Arizona including the Chinle Formation of Petrified Forest National Park.

You can check out the Petrified Forest portion here and make sure to read about the rest of the trip as well and how it relates to new research on Mars.

BTW.... the unidentified paleontologist is Petrified Forest Fossil Preparator Matt Brown, the "other" paleontologist guide (holding up the outcrop) is Jeff Martz.

  1. Hi Bill,
    I've fixed the names in the petrified forest post. Thanks for showing us around the park; it was spectacular, and the paleontology angle was an unexpected but awesome surprise! I've added your blog to my feed-reader so that I can get back up to date on paleontology.
