Island in Time Trail, Sheep Rock Unit, John Day

Island In Time Trail [1.3 mile round trip]
This trail follows the canyon floor and gently ascends through blue-green canyon walls. Exhibits and fossil replicas along the trail tell the story of the fossil landscape. This trail has 220 feet of mostly gradual elevation gain.

This area is so amazing, I could spend days here with my camera or just sitting soaking up the feeling of infinite peace it permeates.
