Painted Hills III – Clarno Unit

In early October I spent five days in the John Day country. Early in the trip I journeyed to the Clarno Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

Here are a few photos from the visit.

Rocky spires (almost look alive)

Natural Arch

Late blooming Daisy

Interesting rock formation

Mineral coloration due to water falling off the cliff during parts of the year
