Red barn in Hood River Valley

Hood River Valley – A beautiful place to visit!

We recently visited Hood River Valley in Oregon. It’s truly a beautiful and peaceful place to go on vacation. We had a great time driving around this scenic place visiting the local Wineries, U-Pick Farms and Fruit Orchards.

Photo Opportunities:?? You can easily spend few days here and still not run out of things to Photograph – Mt. Hood, Orchards, Wineries, Excellent waterfalls of Columbia Gorge, Charming downtown of Hood River, the list goes on and on. Here are some spots we liked along the way.

  • Panorama Point County Park and Viewpoint : Offers breathtaking panoramic views of Hood River Valley and Mt. Hood.??To get here you will need to drive through Orchards and back roads which is fun!
  • The Gorge White House & Winery : This is a??neat little Winery with a beautiful garden to sit in while enjoying your wine. They also have a U-Pick Flower garden which is pretty big and great for photos.
  • Hood River Lavender Farm: The views from this farm are simply amazing. You have multiple mountains in the backdrop and nice Lavender fields with a??Gazebo and you??there are??some Cherry Orchards near by as well.
