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".

    Thank you very much, Alena! Before planning your visit, do make sure to check park hours, as this area is not open to the public year-round.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.
