Travel: Guilt-ridden letters at Escalante Petrified Forest

By Robert Ellis

On our travels we often bring back small stones/rocks as mementos of our trip. I was hoping to purchase some small pieces of petrified wood at the visitor center in Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in Utah. Unfortunately they didn't sell them. The park warns visitors to take only photographs, because 'Some say the petrified wood is haunted and removing a piece brings the taker nothing but bad luck.'

They also display letters from people that illegally remove pieces to take home.

Click headline to see a photo of some of the letters from visitors to the park, plus some of the petrified forest.
