It’s my birthday today. Roger took the day off and I was able to sleep in. Way in! I even got a cooked breakfast in bed! So then we tried to figure out what to do next. We finally decided to pick a direction and just drive, and where we ended up would be just an adventure. So, our final destination turned out to be the John Day Fossil Beds. Just the rock formations alone are beautiful out there, not to mention the history to that area.
Some of the crazy creatures that roamed this area were sloths, rhinoceroses, camels, peccaries (whatever those are) pronghorns, dogs and bears… I am quoting the flyer that I got from there.
Just because the John Day Fossil beds are kinda near where we live, it doesn’t mean that it looks like that where we live. The following is more like we see closer to home:
I have this wierd thing for clouds. I don’t know why, but I think they make the most amazing, gorgeous shapes. So, as our trip was close to an end, I went crazy and took a bunch of cloud pictures.
