Sunday morning travel: The painted hills of Oregon
When most people think of Oregon, they think of rain, Portland, rain, the Oregon trail, hipsters, and rain. However, east of the Cascade mountains, Oregon and Washington State contain miles of desert and scrub lands.For an example of the Washington desert, see my Flickr set from the area.
The Painted Hills in Oregon are the remnants of a large, ancient river flood plain. Unlike the striated rock formations you might see in Arizona and Nevada, the Painted Hills are surprisingly delicate layers of soil, rock, and minerals. A change in humidity will drastically change the coloring of the layers, so the hills often look different depending on the weather.

The Statue of Providence would be the west coast’s answer to the Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty off the coast of New Jersey is pretty badass, but the west coast of the US doesn’t really have anything similar. A couple cool bridges and the Space Needle, but that’s about it.
