In early October I spent five days in the John Day country headquartered in the very small town of Spray, Oregon. Ostensibly, I was deer hunting. But, I had caught a bad cold and ultimately spent much of my time photographing the wildlife and landscapes.
That’s not to say that I didn’t see any deer. I did, although none of them were bruiser-size bucks.
The following blog posts will attempt to highlight the beauty of the area. It is home to the Painted Hills, some of the best fossil beds in the world, good fishing, rafting, mule deer, antelope, mountain sheep, reptiles, amazing geologic formations and many varieties of birds.
The following photo hopefully whets your appetite.
