this photo. Judging by the number and size of these casts, the trees were not as large, nor the forest as dense, in this location as during modern times. It may have been more like the modern valley floor, with the more sparse oak-savannah style of vegetation, but I'm speculating on that. Then the next CRB flow came along and drowned the trees in fire. I feel bad for them, but I'm awfully glad they left such nice fossils.
Incidentally, this was taken at approximately the same location as the other people were standing in yesterday's photo.
