World's Largest Petrified Tree

Field review by the editors.

Holbrook, Arizona

Signs along I-40 beckon travelers to stop at Geronimo Trading Post to see this wonder. When you get there you'll see a massive rock stump about ten feet tall next to the parking lot, surrounded by lumpy debris that may or may not have once been attached to it. It looks like it might be hollow like an old tree trunk.

There are some Indian teepees to add to your sense of dislocation.
