From Pre-pandemic Days

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.

After exploring the trails in the Clarno Unit, I drove to the Painted Hills Unit of the National Monument.

The Overlook and Painted Cove Trails are relatively short. Here are a few photos from the easy hikes.
