things to come…
The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is a pretty amazing place. For now, I’ll just provide a taste of the scene shot from the Paleontology Center before we ventured out to hike. I have quite a few images to sort through yet from this amazing hike. The skies were wonderfully overcast and didn’t seem to interfere with capturing the beauty of this weird and wonderful area.
What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.
