Photographer's Note

This is in the back section that is only seen if you walk across country from the main viewpoint west over the hills and down the draws that you can and cannot see from the trail and parking lot. What you see is the edges of a lake that once fed the vegetation and animals that once grew and roamed the area during the Miocene. In this general vicinity I have found many different types of fossilized trees that have surfaced from beneath the soils and ash deposits that you can see in this image, most of what you see for that matter are ash deposits. Remember if you decide to walk across this strenuous, (if carrying a large pack, water, food, ccamera lens' and cameras, and of course, binoc's, remember to carry a lot of water during the middle of the summer, from late June through September can be very dry.
Remember also you can not take any artifacts from the National Monument as they are the sole property of the U.S. Government and the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
