This property is adjacent to the famous Petrified Forest in Arizona.  You can see the plentiful supply of petrified wood from this area - there's a lovely two-mile drive where you can see whole trees (petrified) - it was explained to us that the petrified wood deposits extended over 200 feet underground in this area.
