Painted Hills Unit: Carroll Rim

John Day Fossil Beds National Monument


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.
