John Day Fossil Beds National Monument: The Painted Hills

We reached the Painted Hills section of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument around mid-afternoon.

The Painted Hills are included in this travel marketing campaign of the seven wonders of Oregon, and you understand why when you get there. It is up there with the most beautiful and unusual terrain I have ever seen. I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves.
