From Pre-pandemic Days
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 pleasant hike into Blue Basin on the The Island in Time Trail, I took the much tougher three-mile Blue Basin Overlook Trail.
The trail provided great views 600 feet down into the bluish-green amphitheater. There were some nice vistas over the John Day River Valley too.
Even though I was still fighting a miserable cold, it was an amazing outing.
