Tillamook Forest Center

For our first Wandering Wednesday, we visited the Tillamook Forest Center, located in the Oregon Coast Range Mountains, just off Highway 6 between Portland and Tillamook, a 40-minute drive from home. The Forest Center is an education and recreation center in a beautiful forested area that was completely destroyed by numerous wildfires (called the “Tillamook Burn“) in the 1930s and 1940s. The area was replanted in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now a beautiful area for hiking and fishing, and wandering around taking photos. We spent a beautiful morning hiking around there, enjoying the wildflowers and the birds, and the sound of the Wilson River.
