I'm wondering if it's really the petrified woods. It's found in ironstone concretions from Dakota Sandstone (Cenomanian), and it strikes me as 'woody'. I'm interested in what others think.

From different trip and different site few months ago, but same formation and age.

It looks like fossil wood to me, too. It actually looks a lot like the stuff I find in the Cretaceous around here!
