Once again feeling cabin fever, I hit the road headed west. The day was gray and cloudy, though little rain for most of the trip. Click pics to supersize them.
I took Highway 6 again, through the Tillamook Forest. The clouds were wending their way through the tops of the hills, which for some reason I just love. Hence the multitude of photos of them.
I think I packed enough food to last a week, and a thermos of hot tea.
You can see the Tillamook Air Museum long before you get to it.
Since I was on the way to meet Luna ( @_Luna1_ ) I didn’t stop on the way to take pictures, but you know how I love to snap photos from a speeding car. I think I’m getting pretty good at it.
I passed the ocean which was rough, surf was up with the storm coming in, but had too many cars behind me to try to photograph that. Besides I’m better shooting out the driver’s side and the ocean was on my right. Next time.
But I did stop and get some nice shots on the way back at a couple of places. Also found some rest stops I never noticed before. The bathrooms were astoundingly clean, my thanks to the State and maintenance crews for such fine facilities.
I loved this place, pulled in on a whim but it’s really nice and much more to explore there. The Smith Homestead Day Use Area has a lot of facilities.
It also has the beautiful Wilson River
Even in the dead of winter it’s green here.
