I’m really glad my girlfriend mentioned the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in the Central part of Oregon. It was a different land coming from Portland and the mountains. Dry but still wonderful. This is really the first dry place I visited in my life. The heat wasn’t to bad as it was not really humid which I’m use to experiencing in Virginia during the Summer. There were a lot of interesting formations and the Painted Hills were really interesting. There was hardly anyone out there, we had the place to ourselves most of the time.
