Tale of Ages

Hiked to the top of a mountain near the Continental Divide and came across these three trees. I wish I could explain how big the petrified one was on the left. Suffice it to say, even laying on its side, it was as tall as a 6ft tall adult standing up.  In the middle was the old dead one, and to the right a very young green one.
