Father and Son Ride to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in East Central Oregon!

Good morning from Phillips Lake, Oregon! Bacon baby!

Kristhawee has totally mastered the art of tying his show laces; good job boy!

Kristhawee was keen to earn another Junior Ranger Badge so we decided that today we would visit the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument!

We had driven past the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument the previous summer but we didn’t stop on account of the extreme heat! This year was also hot but Kristhawee was a year older and wanted to check it out. Good for you son!

Here’s a picture I took of Kristhawee near John Day Fossil Beds National Monument the previous summer when he was just 5

A brief description of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument from the National Park Service site (http://www.nps.gov/joda/index.htm):

Colorful rock formations at John Day Fossil Beds preserve a world class record of plant and animal evolution, changing climate, and past ecosystems that span over 40 million years. Exhibits and a working lab at the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center as well as scenic drives and hikes at all three units allow visitors to explore the prehistoric past of Oregon and see science in action.

Leaving Phillips Lake we spotted an eagle on a nest!

We rode west on the Old West Scenic Bikeway, also called the John Day Highway and followed a K1200LT trike for a while-

Another beautiful day and gorgeous ride!!

Small house, American flag, horses

Continuing west on the “Journey Through Time” Oregon Scenic Byway-

Rode through the cute little town of Dayville-

Continuing west!

We’re getting there!
