North Saskatchewan River, AB - Rocky Feroe

Hi my name's Rocky and my watermark is the North Saskatchewan River in Dawson Park. You can call it my watermark or you can call it my touchstone. Speaking of stones, what I like to do when I'm at my watermark is look for petrified wood. If it's a hot day I like to cool off by putting my ankles in the water and then just trolling for little pieces of petrified wood. Of course petrified wood helps with past life regressions, and all other kinds of things. Petrified wood comes from a time when the river valley was part of a place where ancient camels and mammoths roamed and I think we were closer to the Equator at one point, pieces of land migrate here and there. I think the petrified wood we find is about 70 million-90 million years old or so, don't take anything that I say as fact, you'd better google this. It's similar to trees like ancient sequoias. Each piece is so different, some of it has red in it, some of it has white in it, some of it is almost like burnt wood, some of it has little calcified crystals. Some day I want to sit down and read up on the science and history of this wood but it's super cool!
