A lot of the land surrounding the various parcels that comprise the John Day Fossil Beds NM is private and rather thoroughly posted since there are a lot of visitors to the area. This is an example of the scenery along the Blue Basin Overlook trail that is just beyond the fences. The deposits in this area are almost identical to some of the colorful layers in the Painted Hills although they are only visible when there is no vegetation. Most of the visible tracks are from the cattle being grazed on this acreage. C&C always welcome.
