Found on the edge of the Devil Mountain Maar, this piece of petrified wood was ejected from the sedimentary rock lying beneath the volcano 17,500 years ago. A maar is formed by a phreatomagmatic eruption caused by the explosive interaction of magma and water (permafrost in this case). The Devil Mountain Maar is considered to be the largest in the world.
