This weekend I took a trip to Florissant to check out the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. When I was there, I discovered these huge, fossilized and petrified Redwood stumps. These remains of the goliath trees that are famous in northern California are collosal in their own right. Some stumps are taller than me and upwards of 12 feet in diameter.
Geologic history is fascinating to me. The way the whole planet evolves over time, and the drastic means by which it does so, puts things in perspective. It makes me realize that everything changes to suit its environment. This is something that comforts me when different problems arise in my own life. We, too, can adapt to suit our environments.
