[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This area is referred to as the Blue Basin Area of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument Sheep Rock Unit. Within this small area there have been discovered fossilized tortoise shells and several other varieties of reptilian forms as the Blue Basin was either a ponding area or a river. There are two trails through this beautiful region, one that travels through the middle of the complex, and one that travels across the rim above. Sunset and early morning are the best times to visit. Bring water if you are planning to venture here in the spring and summer as the soils absorb the heat and the area can become quite warm-hot-HOT...
