First stop was at White River Falls State Park.

After White River Falls we found this free campsite on BLM land outside the town of Mitchell, Oregon. 


Day two started with a trip to the Painted Hills.

Very Close to the Painted Hills is the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. 

After a stop in Burns for burgers, we drove another 2 hours to Fields, Oregon.

Day 3

This is the Alvord Desert Playa next to the Steens Mountains. 

Then we started back to Portland.

On the way back to Portland we stopped by Shaniko, a preserved "ghost town" in Central Oregon.

Outside Portland, we saw Mt. Hood and another wonderful sunset.
