John Day Fossil Beds National Monument – The Painted Hills Unit

An amazing location on a crystal clear afternoon…I love Oregon! 💚💚💚

Cabbage Hill Sunset

You can see forever as truck lights streak across the road.

This was shot on a clear evening from the westbound outlook on I-84.  Here you can see parts of Deadman Pass, The Wildhorse Casino, Pendleton, the eastern edge of the Cascades, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood.

This stretch of road tests a truckers skill. Throughout the year you can regularly find the shell of a burnt up semi that overheated on the way down or a trucker that’s stuck in the road putting on chains for extra traction going up. But for the experienced driver, this is a beautiful and highly enjoyable stretch of highway to drive.

Crater Lake

This blue gem is located in south-central Oregon. The incredible blue color comes from it’s nearly pure water absorbing every other wavelength of light. And although it may look like a meteor crater it’s actually a collapsed volcano called a caldera, that has since filled with precipitation. 💚Oregon!
