In early October I spent five days in the John Day country. On the third day of the trip I journeyed to the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
After a tough hike on the Blue Basin Overlook Trail, I drove by Cathedral Rock to the Foree area.
There were two fairly easy trails to choose from. I began by taking the Story in Stone Trail with nice views of colorful rock formations and landscapes.
The Flood of Fire Trail was taken next, ending in a grand view of tall, colorful cliffs.
