- NPS Petrified Forest Home Page. The usual visitor information with minimal links to other helpful sites. "I found the Petrified Forest National Park interesting. The main reason is because of the colors, the variation, mostly that blues can be found in this area. The tints of blue and green are caused by iron. It was very interesting reading about the process of how wood turns to stone, and that quartz, and amethyst can be found in the petrified logs. I would like to add that this class makes me want to visit some of these parks... Joan Clifton"

general park info for haleakala nat park
There are TOO many sites about Katmai with not much info or material in them -- very superficial OR mostly about brown bears, traveling or camping info: over and over again in a particular campsite. But here goes. I tried to pull out as best I could the ones with more then ordinary specs. Very few photos in them as well.
- Valley of Katmai in Photos Excellent site -- all photos, the most (if not the only one of any of the sites) photos and good ones. Pixs were taken during a nine day trip with CalTech geology students. The menu is at the end with many links to maps, plus more.
- Katmai National Park Small site but good map and info.

Several thumbnail pictures with a few dramatic ones in the winter, a scenic drive guide, and a very good map of the park that helps you get its big picture of what location is where.
- Lassen Volcanic National Park This is a very informative site that is not associated with the U.S.G., Dept.
of Int., or the N.P.S. and states it on every internal link page/menu. There
is a wide rage of camping info, travel, guides, activities, and weather.
Only a keynote pix on each lead menu page but nice.
