The Hood River Fruit Loop

That’s why one sunny afternoon a few weeks ago, I decided to drop everything and go on an adventure to the Hood River Fruit Loop before the cold weather and snow arrived.

The Hood River Fruit Loop is a wonderful little oasis located an hour east of Portland that is filled with cider houses, fruit farms and magnificent mountain views. This adventure is the perfect place for someone who wants to escape the craziness of the city for a bit. Here’s a list of what I managed to fit in, in just one afternoon.

1.Start by drinking cider at the The Gorge White House and take in the view of the beautiful flower fields just outside the house
