Petrified Forest National Park
Most of the Petrified Forest National Park's petrified wood comes from tall conifers. These ancient trees grew more than 200 million years ago along waterways, where periodic flooding uprooted trees."

Buckskin Gulch
It’s a toss-up whether the Narrows in Zion National Park of Buckskin Gulch in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is the best nontechnical, multiday slot canyon hike in the world. Beyond debate is the fact that the Buckskin Gulch-Paria Canyon route is nearly thrice as long—meaning more time immersed in a swirling red-rock chasm at points no more than six feet (two meters) wide and 500 feet (152 meters) high."
