West Fork Trail (Sedona, Arizona)

One month ago…

Red Scar Knoll

The last trail in the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, the Red Hill Trail is short and sweet.

A week ago this was my view while on the River Trail in the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Central Oregon.

Sheep Rock Trails - John Day Fossil Beds National Monument

Blue Basin Overlook Trail

We went to two units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument yesterday (Painted Hills Unit and Sheep Rock Unit). I already want to go back to do the unit we missed (Clarno Unit) and catch a few of the trails we didn’t have time for. We hiked 8 of the trails. Most were short (under a mile each) and flat. However, the Blue Basin Overlook Trail was over 3 miles and included 760 feet of elevation gain. That wouldn’t have been so bad if it was our first trail of the day, but it was our 7th. The views though… wow!

One of the views I mentioned last week was this one.

The three peaks in this photo are (from left to right): Brokeoff Mountain, Mt. Diller, and Pilot Pinnacle.

Funny name, really cool place. The easy hike to Bumpass Hell has some spectacular views. Once you arrive at Bumpass Hell, it feels like you’re in another world.
