Pillars of Rome (Eastern Oregon)

We recently visited the Pillars of Rome in Malhuer County, Eastern Oregon and WOW. They did not disappoint.  We felt the ghost of ObiWan Kenobi wandering through here with us!

The 100-foot (30 m)-high Rome Cliffs, or “Pillars of Rome” are formations of fossil-bearing clay, measuring about 5 miles (8 km) long and 2 miles (3 km) wide. They’re located along the Owyhee River in a very remote area.

Filming would be challenging here as there is only one place to stay and they are spartan cabins in Rome itself, part of the one store here. It could be done however, with a team of RV’s on the neighboring cattle property for a price.  It would be well worth it though.

Shevlin Park: Forest views, February

Whenever someone asks us for locations with trees, I laugh a little inside as we have millions of trees, of varying kinds (ponderosas, junipers, aspens and lodgepole pine).  Ponderosas are gorgeous and create really stunning locations due to the striations in their bark.  These images were taken between 2-4pm in mid-February, in Shevlin Park.  There is a road that can be utilized by film crew towards the southern side of the park with a Forest service restroom, and a large parking area.  Permits are required through Bend Park and Rec, at least 30 days in advance.
