Default Re: Your favourite place in your country?

Hi Lynn,
My favorite place in Oregon would have to be the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds in Central Oregon. This unit is close to Bend, Oregon that is nestled in the volcanic country of Central Oregon, and it is also four hours drive from Portland. If you are going to visit here you will see many high peaks such as Mt. Jefferson-11,000'--Three Sisters-10,000'-- Mt. Hood-11,000'-- Newberry Volcano,Extinct Volcano Crater--you can also walk the obsidian trail at Newberry, and camp at East Lake Resort Cabins. A beautiful lake with hot springs and great fishing.
I have many photos of the Painted Hills on my site under Wahclellaspirit, or Steve Warnstaff.
Hope this helps,
Steve Warnstaff
