  • 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.
