We took the Three Capes Scenic Loop to Tillamook. We stopped at each pullout and were not disappointed. From Cape Outlook we could see "Three Arches" located in Oceanside in the distance. It was great since we could see the central arch. We visited the Oceanside Recreational area where the "Three Arches" are located, the Rosenberg Family built a tunnel through Maxwell Point that leads you to Tunnel Beach. We then drove to Cape Meares with its amazing views and the home to the "Octopus Tree", a giant multi-trunked Sitka Spruce. It is a mystery why the tree formed this way, it could have been the wind, insects or what the Native American's say it is from its function as a ceremonial site, shaped to hold cedar canoes and other ritual objects.

We visited Tillamook and decided that we need to come back and spend a full day. We did see a goat watching all the visitors at the Blue Heron Cheese Factory.
