John Day Fossil Beds National Monument has got to be one of the most phenomenal places to witness geology. The Painted Hills themselves even seem to be something out of a Star Wars movie with their array of colors.
I was recently lucky enough to do some soil science field work in the area for a few days. Needless to say, I will definitely be back at John Day and at a time where it can be more of a recreational visit.
Oregon geology at it’s finest y’all!
