When the day time temperatures weren't so hot, I ventured out for a hike at Long Logs Trail, at the south end of the park. What I didn't realized was how windy it was!
The trail follows what appears to be an old road, which leads you to rolling hills covered in big chunks of petrified wood! The details, like burls and bark, are what just amaze me.
This trip is inspiring me for the next Howdy Joey! book - I want children to be excited about exploring the National Park system - I hope the book will help them look for the little details that make visiting the park an amazing experience.
