Here is a shot of a portion of the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds in northern central Oregon. It was late in the day and the sun was dropping behind the adjacent hills. The resulting shadow in the foreground helps to frame the hill in the background.

Scanned 35mm negative.

Nice shot, Cal. Almost looks like an old, what we called "indian" blanket. I have a red and black one. Not sure if there is a name for them.

I redid the caption and uploaded a new image to Photobucket. The caption was a bit fuzzy and hard to read in the original.

I agree with NH mom - this looks like a blanket draped over the hills. Beautiful!

NHMOM and Monkey, thanks for your comments. The only name that comes to mind is Serapi but that is a shawl with a hole in the middle for the head and is worn by Latin American people.

Beautiful shot Cal. I haven't been to Oregon but it reminds me of the Painted Desert in Arizona. Does the coloration cover a large geography or is this particular hill unique to the area?

Thank you, Bill, for your kind remarks. There is an area of about one square mile that exhibits this multicolored layering of sandstone. It looks nice in the pictures but even better in person.

In looking at this again it reminds me of those jars with colored sand in them.
