So sad. We saw it years ago and I wondered how it managed for so long even then.
I had heard of it since I was a kid, but never made it to see it even thought we were close. Another piece of history gone.Thanks for leaving a comment.
Sad indeed. We visited there in July when we stayed at Arnold CA at my brother's cabin. Beautiful park. Still lots of great hiking trails and other big trees to see. In today's age, hard to imagine what folks were thinking when they cut a hole through it...
Glad you visited it. Times have changed for sure. I was amazed when I visited the petrified forest and read and saw pics of people collecting souvenirs and taking them home. We are so lucky to have National Parks etc to protect things for future kids.
