Sheep Rock Webcam

Sheep Rock is one of the magnificent centerpieces of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, rising over 1,000 feet above the valley floor. Colorful, fossil-rich volcanic ash layers are visible on its slopes. This camera refreshes every 2.5 minutes.

The Clarno Unit Palisades

The webcam is pointed towards the northwest at the Clarno Palisades, 50-million-year-old mudflow deposits.  The Palisades are approximately 1,750 feet in elevation and for comparison, the top of Sheep Rock is over 3,000 feet tall.  The Clarno Unit is the least visited unit of the park and the weather is often the mildest.

Painted Hills Unit: Carroll Rim

The webcam points towards the northwest at Carroll Rim, a 2430 ft (741 m) hill capped by ignimbrite, or a massive pyroclastic deposit. The ignimbrite sits on top of the Turtle Cove member of the John Day formation. The iconic painted hills are not visible in this image, but the view gives a good approximation of what the weather may be like at the Painted Hills Unit.
