To see 80 plus quilt blocks take a self-guided tour on the Tillamook County Quilt Trail. The trail showcases the great heritage of historic barns and buildings in Tillamook County on Oregon’s Scenic North Coast with a large painted wooden quilt block.  The Trail, the first of its kind on the West Coast, have invited tourists and locals alike to share the dairy history and celebrate the unique rural heritage that is Tillamook County. 

Although Red’s time on the Quilt Trail was short it did get a chance to visit The Leuthold Dairy thanks to the innkeepers at Sandlake Country Inn.  Five generations of grown up on this farm and the quilt block hangs on the oldest barn on the property, once a milking barn, now housing the young calves. This structure is #10 on the Quilt Trail

Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge

From nearly every viewpoint on the Oregon coast, colossal rocks can be seen jutting out of the Pacific Ocean creating postcard images.  Red Chair Travels watched the sunset near Haystack Rock, an iconic monolith, a short scenic drive from Sandlake Country Inn where its been staying this past week.

Each of these rocks is protected as part of Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge includes 1,853 small islands, rocks, and reefs plus two headlands, totaling 371 acres spanning 320 miles of Oregon’s coastline from the Oregon–California border to Tillamook Head.

All of the island acreage is designated National Wilderness, with the exception of 1-acre Tillamook Rock and Lighthouse, so public access is restricted but there are spectacular viewing opportunities at numerous locations along the coast.

Red Chair Travels takes a trip to the Farm

Red Chair Travels learned about  the history of Tillamook which began in 1909 and as a fascinating tale of nineteenth century European immigrants making their way to the Oregon coast in search of cheap inhabitable land not already taken by folks coming through on the Oregon Trail.

The innkeepers of Sandlake Country Inn put on their concierge’s caps and took Red Chair to one of Tillamook’s cooperative dairies.  Many of the nearly 100 farm families have been farming in Tillamook County for generations and take great pride in producing very high quality dairy products

Red Chair got to meet some of the cows feasting on the lush green grass and then the heifers in the 100 year old barn.  After a long day exploring the farm and the Oregon coast it was back to the Inn for some R&R.

The Sandlake Country Inn is 10 minutes north of Pacific City and just minutes from Pacific Ocean beaches.  This historical landmark B&B has 3 spacious rooms and a romantic stand alone cottage.  Gourmet breakfasts are delivered to your door for ultimate privacy.  Service and attention to detail are provided along with the privacy you’re looking for.

After you’ve selected the very best in Oregon Coast Lodging you’ll want to visit Tillamook Cheese, watch cheesemakers and packaging staff at work. Hear about the history and the cheesemaking process. Smell the delicious aroma of freshly baked waffle cones. And best of all, taste the award-winning cheeses, nearly 40 flavors of ice cream.

McKenzie River Koosah Falls

Next week is the Annual Meeting of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild and living in Parkdale, Oregon, we have a couple of ways to get to Salem.  We are choosing the longer route for a couple of reasons: We love to Chase Waterfalls and Geocaches and document them on our Facebook page.  So we’ll head south around Mt Hood then take the McKenzie Pass Scenic Byway, Hwy 126.  These are just a few of the McKenzie River Waterfalls we hope to shoot.  If you know of any others please let me know.  We have most of the afternoon and an extra hour of daylight.

Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls:  Two breathtaking waterfalls with foaming white water cascades in between

There are other waterfalls in the World Famous McKenzie River area and I’m not sure we’ll have time to see them all.  We’d love to hike into Tamolitch Falls (aka Blue Pool) but again, time and weather will be the deciding factor.

We invite you to discover and explore the Scenic McKenzie River area, either on foot, bike or car.  Start your journey at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast member inn on either side of this stunning drive through the Central Oregon Cascades, from Eugene or Sisters.   I hope to get some good shots and share them with you in a future post
