Arch Bend, John Day Rive

This is one of many impressive entrenched meanders that central Oregon's John Day River has cut into the lava flows of the vast Columbia River Basalt Formatiion. The John Day River here divides Sherman and Gilliam Counties and provides one of the great river rafting experiences in Oregon, a multi-day expedition on a wild and scenic river. Photographed on 4x5.
