Day 3, 3-Week Teardrop Trailer Trip: Gigantic Marshmallows of Oregon


Marshmallows in Oregon . . . they sure do grow ’em big here!


Oregon both disappointed and delighted. Marine-layer weather kept us from seeing much of the coastline. And our expectations that the ride along Route 101 North would hug the coastline in the first place was misguided. We only occasionally caught a view:

Still, there was much to see. A stop at the Tillamook Cheese Factory was pretty cool. Cheese is our cryptonite, but we bought some anyway. Their 3-year vintage extra sharp white cheddar cheese is divine.

We enjoyed it at a great little county park that allowed us a lake-side view.

We ended up in the KOA campground in Otis, OR, where I met a new friend:



Oregon loves their bridges and got us loving them, too. Many, if not all, of them featured curious Empire State Building styled columns announcing the bridge’s arrival. We took to photographing several bridges in Oregon, including the final crossover bridge to the state of Washington:

On to Washington!

  1. I remember visiting the Tilamook Cheese Factory as a kid on a family trip. Been addicted to cheese ever since. Sorry about the coastline. It’s beautiful, IF you can see it. Safe travels!

  2. Very cool, Ms. Susan, but your new friend looks a bit stiff. I’ve noticed that your pulling your teardrop camper with a PT cruiser. Makes me wonder if there should be one in my future… 😉

    1. I say ‘Go for it! My PT is turbo and pulls the teardrop like a dream! Of course, we built the trailer ground up to our own specs, but, yes, they are easy to pull with smaller cars. We are hooked. 🙂
