Mt Hood and the Blooming Fruit Orchards of the Hood River Valley

Mt Hood and the Blooming Fruit Orchards

Card Caption:

Pear trees in the Upper Hood River Valley burst into full blossom each April, while deep winter snow blankets the north face of Mount Hood.  At 11,240 ft (3,426 m), Mount Hood is Oregon’s highest peak and most recently active volcano.  It last erupted a little over 200 years ago.

Hutson Museum Park and the Mt Hood Railroad – Parkdale, Oregon

The Mt Hood Railroad runs along part of the tracks from Parkdale to Hood River

on the route that picked up fruits from the orchards.

Note Mt Hood in the distance.

The Hutson House, Museum, Barns and Park sit at the end of the route.

I got this card to send to my aunt.

Apple Valley Country Store

The store is charming and located in Hood River – very touristy!

We got the card at their BarBQue Restaurant in Parkdale – which is quite good.

I love the old look of the orchards in the Hood River Valley.

We picked this one up to send to my Aunt.

Below, the Crooked River, Farmland in Terrebonne and the Cascades in the distance.

This is one of the formations in the Smith Rocks complex.

This is a popular place for rock climbers and they come from around the world to climb here.

Beyond the rocks, high desert farms can be seen.
