For the Memorial Day long weekend we decided to head down to John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in eastern Oregon. The park is made up of three sections or “Units” as they are called: Sheep Rock, Painted Hills and Clarno. Originally the goal was to spend the weekend photographing the Painted Hills unit of the park as it was the only section of the park I had heard about. But we decided to explore the whole park and I am glad we did.
Normally I do a post like this along with the photos I took of the location, but due to the amount of photos and the amount of details about the park I decided to dedicate this post to just detailed directions and info about the park. Check out this post for all of the photos.
