Photography Tour to John Day

Each spring for about 3-4 weeks from mid April thru mid May the hills come alive with green grasses then turn brown for the rest of the year.  The rolling hills East of Central Oregon offer superb views of the spring condition. The roads are little traveled and offer many stretches of the type driving opportunities that Porsche cars and their drivers like. This tour also offers numerous photo opportunities and varied landscape.  The pace will be varied depending upon the scenery and road conditions. The starting point will be from the Redmond Wall-Mart parking lot, West lot, near the PetCo store.

Planed stops include : Shaniko, John Day Clarno Unit, Fossil and Painted Hills. Lunch will be in Fossil where two restaurants are available (to view menus check web sites of Korner Cafe and Cross Rifle BBQ or some may want to bring sack lunch. There is also a general store in town where sandwiches, snacks and drinks will be available. Gasoline is also available in Fossil. A one hour stop is planned. The other stops will be 20-30 minutes to allow photo opportunities and rest room stops.
