Day 11 (Aug 17): Ginkgo Petrified Forest

We stopped by the Ginkgo Petrified Forest on our drive west. This entire area is covered with gingko tree fossils. They also found the below in the area believed to be left behind by the Native Americans who used to live here. Notice the peace sign on the top left? This Native American tribe is known to be very peaceful, and it is also believed that that is why they did not fight back and lost the land they have lived in for centuries.

Finally, Seattle!

We headed straight for a good seafood dinner. Dungeness crabs piled up in front of Chris.
