I was in Jackson, MS for training and just had to go. What a great place.

Mississippi Petrified Forest
This is the only petrified forest east of the Mississippi River. It consists of a walking trail where you can see numerous petrified tree trunks as well as the awe-inspiring "Sand Wall." There is also a museum which has a black light rock exhibit. Check out the wildcat cage in the parking area and the wild kangaroo behind the museum.
