Russ and I decided that Saturday was a perfect day for a family Father’s Day outing. We drove all the way up to Tillamook on the Oregon coast where we visited the local farmer’s market, the Tillamook Country Smoker outlet to purchase our favorite teriyaki sticks, the Tillamook Cheese Factory, and Blue Heron French Cheese Company. Then we drove south down the coast.
Drift Creek Falls was on my want-to-visit list this summer, so I convinced Russ to take the detour. It was more of a detour than I expected because the drive on that curvy, single-lane forest service access road is long.
We survived the drive, however, and enjoyed the (muddy) 1.25 mile hike to the 240-foot-long cable bridge suspended 100 feet above the canyon and overlooking Drift Creek Falls.
After our hike, we ate clam chowder at Mo’s and then headed to my favorite beach. Those pictures are up next…
