On our trip to the Wallowa Lake Lodge in Joseph we took the long way around, turning a six hour trip into a day and a half of driving by going through the incredible John Day/Fossil Area.
What a glorious surprise awaited us in the magnificent splendor of the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument!
I could try to describe the colors to you, but it would be useless because the colors you see is dependent on the time of day, the time of year, and whether or not there has been rain recently.
We took an easy hike through this area. Mr. ChaCha took around a thousand photos on the first day, many of which were taken here. He is studiously adjusting his camera in the next photo.
I mostly use the point and shoot method when taking pictures outdoors.
The glorious colors in the day and the coolness in the evening definitely put me in the mood for autumn knits.
This is the machine knit scarf/wrap that you saw blocked and drying last week. It's about to go in my Etsy store.
This little purse crocheted from recycled sari silk is going along to the store as well.
