I took this photo while driving through the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Oregon. Not enough time to visit, but just a few shots here and there along the John Day River basin. This National Park got its name from the well-preserved beds of fossil plants and mammals from prehistoric times.
Below I got some nice rolling hills in the rural surrounding area. There is a lot to see on the scenic byway around Dayville, following the river (Northeastern Oregon)…
Believe it or not, I got all these photos using my iPhone 🙂
Not too far away, on the same area of the John Day river basin and Hwy, we couldn’t miss the Strawberry Mountain Range – 9038 ft elevation.
