Petrified Wood Park is a Selfie Paradise

Take a selfie in Lemmon’s Petrified Wood Park and everyone in your social media family will wonder about your whereabouts. The city’s signature attraction, dating to the 1930s, is a funky collection of petrified wood, fossils, stones and other geological wonders, some mortared together in the shape of trees, spires and castles. Rounded stones known as cannonballs, collected largely from the nearby Cannonball River Valley, are a big part of the park. Though the park may sound kitschy, it’s actually a tasteful and well-preserved throwback to simpler times. There’s no admission, and the Daily Grind coffee shop is just across the street.
