One of the most fascinating geological wonderlands in America is tucked away in the remote Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. Ancient lavas, volcanic mudflows, and ash deposits form a colorful landscape around the John Day River and its tributaries. Sixty million years of prehistoric animals and plants have been preserved as fossils in the geologic strata of the barren cliffs. Take a journey through time with Portland Audubon as we explore the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. We’ll visit the Painted Hills, Blue Basin, and more. The focus will be on geology, but along the way we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for birds, wildflowers, and other aspects of the region’s natural history.
