The Sheep Rock Unit is located on Highway 19, between the towns of Kimberly and Dayville, Oregon. Prominant, non-fossil bearing rocks date back as far as 95 million years old. Fossils of plants and animals are found in a number of geological layers dating from 33-7 million years ago.

John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is comprised of more than 14,000 acres within three separate units located in eastern Oregon ... Sheep Rock, Painted Hills, and Clarno. Unfortunately, you will find no dinosaurs here as this area was underwater during that time.The John Day Fossil Beds preserve plant and animal fossils from most of the Age of Mammals and Flowering Plants, covering a time period from 44 million years ago until 7 million years ago. With such a vast span of time covered in one place, this area provides unparalleled insight into how the world as we know it came to be.
