Continue to a painted hills rest area and then about 4 miles up a dirt, rough road. (No low cars or large rv's). At the camp there will be casual hiking over some painted hills and up a dirt road and/or along the John Day River. There is no drinking water so everyone must bring plenty of water. There is a store in Fossil. Sunday morning we will go up over the hills and drop into Antelope for breakfast, stop at the 'living ghost town' of Shaniko, continue down to the Gorge and home. ONE night 'primitive' camping. Primitive means no cabins, running water, campsites. We just ENJOY the area and the wilderness countryside.
