Tillamook, Oregon ~ March 11, 2006
This post is especially for someone who likes Tillamook cheese and yogurt, but what most people like to sample when they come here is the ICE CREAM. And don't forget the Fudge Counter. It takes about an hour and a half to drive from Astoria to Tillamook if you don't stop, but the drive is along Oregon's amazing coastline, so most people want to stop and take lots of photos along the way, or at least look at the scenery. Once to you get to Tillamook, here are a few things you'll see on a visit to Dairy Heaven. First, the sign over the entrance.
Then the side of the building. I see that some people are enjoying the sun after filling up on cold dairy products.
Upstairs, there are viewing windows on both sides of a hallway. You can't miss the big milk cartons that look like cows, but also note that there's a country-style mini table with dairy products. If I remember after all these years, it's only for display. Darn.
Through tinted windows you can see lots of cheese and processing equipment . . .
. . . along with guys in shower caps.
And more processing equipment. It's pretty cool looking.
Except for the taste-testing, here is my favorite part. Fake cows. The green sign in front is where I got the title for the post.
