Painted Hills

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.

Developing film a few months after shooting it is like revisiting trips and have those “Oh yeah I took that…”. The trip to New York back in December was a nice little trip but found that it was very crowded back at that time of the year. I brought a film and a digital camera with me but I wish I brought just one as I was going back and forth with them.

Bend in the road

Olympic National Park is a large park a a lot of it can not be visited at all unless you get out of your car and hike in. I wish I had the time but I was on the road to see a lot. This is from a popular area Hurricane Ridge  that is accessible from Port Angeles Oregon. Lovely area but can get busy later in the day.
