Petrified Trees

I've posted about the Florissant Fossil Beds in the past - it's one of the greatest fossil beds ever discovered. Here are a couple of petrified trees.
These are redwood trees, preserved in a volcanic eruption around 35 million years ago.

Nashville Parthenon Inside

Inside the recreation of the Parthenon in Nashville is an art museum where photos aren't allowed, and a large replica of the Athena Parthenos statue.
At her feet is a shield with a serpent.
Here's a close-up of her head.
Her right hand holds a statue of Nike (Victory).

Trees And Blue Sky

Blue skies are a common sight where I live - the American Southwest is one of the sunniest places on the planet and the Front Range of Colorado shares in that lovely weather; the mountains shield us from most storms. I'm always happy to share these skies for Skywatch Friday!

Tennessee Parthenon

One of the attractions in the Nashville area is a full-sized recreation of the Parthenon.
While the original Parthenon was completed in 438 BC, this replica was completed in 1925.
It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Next week I'll show you inside.
