Fossil tree at my Van Gogh digs

(1/4) > >>

Itsandbits:
One of hundreds of trees buried 60+ mya, under about 300ft. of pyroclastic flow, basalt low, underwater slides, silt layers, ash fall layers, and what not. A lot are knocked down but this one stood for thousands to ??? hundreds of thousands of years preserved under water as it was buried by silt flows and underwater landslides. Large pieces litter the steep slope below as it erodes from where it was buried for so long






My offering to Mother Nature I found on my climb from far below; placed where it will stay for a while

the yellowy layer are fossilized trees that were felled by pyroclastic flows millions of years ago
