Painted Hills Glow
Photo By Bob Faucher

  • Title: Painted Hills Glow
  • State/Province/Region: Oregon
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: John Day Fossil Beds NM, Painted Hills Unit
  • Nearest Town: Mitchell
  • Brief Directions: Head west on Highway 207 from Mitchell to the first northbound county road and follow it to the Painted Hills Unit.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: The color-splashed hummocks and hills of Bentonite are the eroded remnants of the John Day Formation. The weathering of volcanic ash under varying climatic regimes resulted in vividly-hued layers of red, pink, bronze, tan and black. The colors are intensified when the landscape is wet and the light is soft—the Hills literally glow.
  • Gear: Canon 5D; 16-35 mm @ 33 mm; Gitzo tripod; RRS B55 ballhead
