Mount Hood & Hood River, Oregon and Walla Walla, Washington, USA (9/14-17/2009)

The towns of Hood River on the Columbia River and Walla Walla in Washington's wine country are well worth a visit. 

Hood River is beautiful and is known for its wind surfing (see photo) and the Fruit Loop - 35 very scenic miles of wineries, bountiful fruit stands, flowers, and baked goods (see photos). Hood River's Fruit Loop is a day’s adventure.

A drive up to Mount Hood is another scenic drive where we visited the famous Timberline Lodge built in 1937 at the foot of Mount Hood where they have year around skiing. Timberline Lodge was used in the movie The Shining

We also hiked around Lost Lake and Trillium Lake. The beautiful forest drive out to Lost Lake is worth the trip alone and Trillium Lake is amazing – hiking along a beautiful alpine lake through old growth forests (see photos). 

On the drive to Walla Walla, Washington, we visited the Maryville Museum (see photo) housing quite a number of famous pieces of art. Walla Walla in Washington's wine country is also fun. It is a beautiful town with old homes, green parks, and great wines. Walla Walla is a fun place to visit.
