Eastern Oregon Road Trip: Next stop, Painted Hills

We took off from Prairie City and made our way to the Painted Hills in the cool of the morning. The Painted Hills, is 50 miles east of Prineville on a spur road off U.S. 26. Turn left at the sign outside Mitchell and go six miles along Bridge Creek to the site.

I've been wanting to see the "Painted Hills" located in the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument for some time now and when we got there, I wasn't disappointed. It is just flat out amazing. The colors are so vivid that it is almost surreal.
