Discover Columbia Gorge/Hood River

Sorry if I’ve been slacking.  It’s been awhile since my husband and I got any alone time since the little one was born couple years ago.  So, he took me away for the weekend and I also have been busy at work too. But, I promised I will slowly get back into my grooves to start updating the blog again.

I just wanted to share the scenery and the food I ate on my trip here, just in case you would like to visit the area someday.

Hood River is along the Columbia River Gorge area (Northwest of Oregon) and you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery and lots of outdoor activities to indulge yourself in such as hiking, rock climbing, biking, kayaking, sailing, para-sailing etc.  There’s a lot of family friendly easy to moderate hikes. We did a short Bridal Veil Falls hike and then a longer Multnomah falls hike (45 mins up 620 feet elevation).

 

If you are not an adventurous outdoor person like myself, no worries, you can go and enjoy the food. Which is exactly we did for the most part 🙂

Also, if you wanted to relax and get a massage. I do recommend to go to Holistic Massage Hood River and the service was great and the massage therapist is good at taking care of your sore spots and work on the trouble areas.
