Carroll Rim - Painted Hills Overlook Trail
This view from the Painted Hills Overlook Trail shows the John Day Formation exposed on the southern flank of the Carroll Rim. The Picture Gorge Ignimbrite caps the rim. A 1.5 miles hiking trail leads to the top of the bluff from the Painted Hills Overlook/Carroll Rim trailhead parking area. This image shows a common sagebrush and a juniper in the foreground - both are common plants of the high desert in eastern central Oregon.
