Sight the John Day Fossil Beds
One of Oregon’s seven wonders-
Painted Hills, this is,

Simply incredible.

Million years of climate change, 
Seasons, rain like weather, 
Stokes of light,
Transformed rock and soil,
Creating colorful palette
Of yellow,orange,
And layers of red, 
Streaks of, gold and grey
Shifting and changing
Again and again
Creating an awesome landscape view

Simply incredible.
