We headed to the Ochoco Divide Forest Service Campground. Our literature stated there was a RV limit of 24' but we checked it out and there were several site suitable for the Beaver. We set up and headed out to explore. The John Day Fossil Bed National Monument, Painted Hills section is a few miles down the canyon. It was later in the day, but I wanted to go later in the day to catch good light for photos. I've been to the Painted Desert in Arizona and was expecting similar geography. The Painted Hills are different in that they are smaller and smoother in construction in appearance. There are several short trails to explore in order to see the hills and we managed to explore all be one. It was really hard to chose just a few photos for the blog. The sky was very hazy due to forest fires and it was difficult to pull out the blue ski so some of the photos are a little off.
The hills are very close and touchable. The soil looks like popcorn. We spent another day at the campground, but the sites were not good for solar and had to move one. Nice quiet campground, though.
