The Painted Hills At Dawn
Photo By Stuart Gordon

  • Title: The Painted Hills At Dawn
  • State/Province/Region: Oregon
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: John day Fossil Beds national Monument
  • Nearest Town: Mitchell
  • Brief Directions: From Prineville head east toward the Idaho border and the town of Mitchell in Eastern Oregon. The painted Hills is part of the John day Fossil Bend National Monument.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Wildflowers arrive in May, especially Golden Bees, painting the already colorful Painted Hills with bright yellow swatches. The Painted Hills were formed as a result of the buildup of ash from volcanic explosions in Eastern and Central Oregon over eons. The different colors banded in the smoothly molded hills represent different climatic changes over many millenia.

    Thanks Laura! It's up in the area you also enjoy visiting/photographing, there in the Eastern Sierras! I can't wait for a few more weeks to go start chasing the Fall colors! I look forward to...
