The Painted Hills, located about 9 miles northwest of the town of Mitchell, Oregon, is named after the colorful layers of its hills corresponding to various geological eras, formed when the area was an ancient river floodplain. Distinguished by varied stripes of red, tan, orange, and black, this area is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon.

Amazing colors made by Dame Nature herself !!! Nice photos 🙂
For the location of a movie, it lends itself to its color. We can imagine images, these natural formations go well.
Beautiful, really need to visit there
Amazing, colourful landscape!
Those hills are great, aren’t they! I can’t wait to go back.
