Tillamook Cheese and a Nice Salmon

Today we moved further south to The Siletz River. As we were backing into our site this 26 lb. Chinook was brought in from the river. This is a native as are the Silvers here in this river. What a beauty!

We couldn't pass through Tillamook without a visit to the cheese factory.

The free samples are a popular part of the tour.

Even though the tour and samples are free everyone spends a good deal in their store, as did we.

Workers slice up 40 lb. aged blocks into smaller retail sizes.


  1. Nice fish! Jim loves the cheese and the ice cream.

  2. Yum, yum. GOTTA see if we can get to the Tillamook factory!

  3. Yummy, cheese! Have you ever made cheese? It's surprisingly easy
