Painted Hills In Winter
Photo By Marcy Ugstad

  • Title: Painted Hills In Winter
  • State/Province/Region: Oregon
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Central Oregon
  • Nearest Town: Mitchell
  • Brief Directions: From Portland, Oregon - go east on Hwy 26 to Hwy 97. South on Hwy 97 to Madras, Oregon. Regain Hwy 26 just south of Madras - go through town of Prineville staying on Hwy 26. Go over Ochoco Pass and down toward the town of Mitchell. Watch for a green highway sign that says "Painted Hills Unit - John Day Fossil Beds National Monument". Follow a narrow 2 lane road to the Painted Hills.

    Thanks Paul and Lorenzo! This is one of those scenes that a camera will never do justice to-there was nothing like being there.
